Because, with the introduction of the Core 2 Duos a few years ago, Intel recaptured the lead and with only a couple exceptions across the whole line, Intel CPUs offer better performance, less power consumption, and less heat generation than AMD CPUs. So the only area AMD can compete, is in price.
Why are AMD processors so cheap in comparison to Intel?
As far as which is better for you, that depends on many factors, including your budget. If me, I would visit the WoW and Gunz forums and ask the question there. But be warned - many "fanboys" from both sides will trash the other with exceptions. Discard them and listen to the overall message.
Normally yes, but he said he plays those specific games. I would expect the regulars on those sites would have better insight as to which CPU platform provides better "game play". Unless someone here has specific knowledge about those games, we can only guess - or make a generalized blanket statement, as I did with Intel. I would make the same recommendation for graphics cards too. Some games play better with AMD/ATI GPUs and some play better with nVidia. If you are hooked on one game, ask other's hooked on that game what HW platforms plays best.
If that's true, wouldn't Formaldehyde be better served by staying here and getting objective advice, rather than having to filter the subjective opinions of fanboys? . We have extremely knowledgeable hardware techs here that can undoubtedly help in determining what would suit his needs.
while there are some applications that are designed to be (relatively) manufacturer specific (like 3d CAD applications) i don't know of any that are actually 100% specific that will only work with X card from X brand...
Some games play better with AMD/ATI GPUs and some play better with nVidia.
I agree 100%. But we were not talking about "issues" which to me, means "problems". If I misinterpreted, I apologize.
it's GENERALLY more an issue of misconfiguration or using the wrong driver version that causes issues
