    I can't stand AMD, I'm sure they are much slower.
    been using quad core AMD for some heavy work (compressing large amounts of data and it takes ages!
    will be in compressing from dual Xeon, can't wait to see which is quicker.

    The E5 Xeons from Intel are the real thing specially if combined with SSD. Not sure if you would use that setup for a desktop though.

    Ohh yess... that has to be the best setup. The high end E5s are just insane.

    I know Intel is better, but at this time I have a relatively old AMD which rocks and helps me a lot doing lots of work.

    Currently I have a amd phenom 2 965, but I will probably get the i5 3570k for my next build when I get back into day trading.

    This would Rock:)

    I'm going to test the two systems I am running at the moment, will get specs later but I'm going to extract a large compressed file with 7zip on both machines and see which is quicker, because I'm a nerd:)

    Well I extracted 2.5gb file zipped with 7z on both machines - 1 running quad core AMD opteron, think it was 2.4ghz each core. Took 12minutes.

    On the dualcore XEON (E3), 3.1ghz each core, it took 4minutes:)

    But will the e5 8 core 3.1GHZ sandybridge, that produces 256Gflops of power be able to speed up normal programs enough to jusitfy its cost at $1900 ?

    My AMD A8-4500m APU w/ 8 gig ram, out performs my Macbook pro with the Intel i7, and 8 gig ram, everytime when I'm rendering like compositions in After Effects, the AMD is slightly faster.... so For the Cost Conscious, AMD.... if you've got the green, then the Higher end Intel...

    AMD used to be brain of Choice, But since Egor brought the last one home from the morgue, it ran crazy and overheated like the ones before, I asked him what body did he get it from He said the mans name was Mr. Physiologically Defective and a spare one from Mr Mentally Disturbed. Since then I send him to the Intel Factory for sourcing now to be fresh ones off the Assembly line.

    I have an Intel Core i5 and it works great for me. I mostly game on my computer and it runs games very smoothly though most of it has to do with the video card. Most people don't need an i7.

    Recently bought an Intel i5 for doing some video work on Windows 7 64-bit and it's fine. I see no reason to upgrade to Windows 8 since all of the drivers and applications are very well behaved.
