Intel Vs. AMD Anonymous 12/25/2019 (Wed) 03:05:57 No. 686
Building a new computer soon. I've been out of the market for a decade and much has changed. I've seen a lot of news about AMD overtaking Intel in the desktop processor market, but have never been an AMD fan. I am seriously considering AMD for my next build, but am concerned about processor heat, longevity, and linux compatibility. Intel will also release their new line of processors early next year, and I am tempted to wait for that. AMD has also been gunning for Nvidia, but currently does not have a superior graphics card. There is so much conflicting information online, and so many AMD fanboys it is difficult to find objective information on what to put in a build. I used to turn to YouTube for information, but so many channels appear to be bought and paid for. I am curious to hear what /g/'s consensus is on what to put in a new build. I plan to spend roughly 4k on the desktop and 1.5k on a high-res 200Hz monitor. I plan to use linux for my main OS and Windows for gaming and video editing. Also curious to hear about storage options. I'd like to use 2 or 4 M.2 SSDs for in pairs of RAID0 for the OS and 2 or 4 HDDs for backup. Anyone have a more effective/cost efficient setup? Appreciate your responses.

Intel is full botnet, AMD is a bit better. See here for a sample, in case you've been living under a rock: https://cpu.fail/
>>687 I am aware. I've been using my current computer since Feb 2008, I need to upgrade. Can't say I trust AMD any more than Intel, but perhaps it is the best option in early 2020.

Well I use ARM, and that's less botnet than x86, but it's not a good choice for: > Windows for gaming and video editing
