PCWizKid has reviewed many AMD and Intel CPU's. However in PCWizKid's reviews the bottom line is whats the perforance you are getting for the $$$. Why? Well one thing to keep in mind is that AMD's intent is to give the best price for the performance comparing it to the Intel CPU's. The choices are limited when it comes to CPU brands its either Intel or AMD. So if we are forced to chose one, lets make the best decision we can based on our budget. However if you are looking for maximum performance and price is not an issue, Intel's CPU's are still to be beaten since they lead currently with the fastest CPU's overall.
Dont get me wrong, if money is no problem for you, please by all means get the Intel Core i7, PCWizKid admits that without a doubt the performance of an Intel Core i7 is greater however so is the price! Take a look at the CPU Hierarchy chart and you can see how Intel vs AMD compare, and then check the prices further below for AMD and you will see that for the average consumer who is looking to save and still get performance PCWizKid recommended AMD CPU's.
PCWizKid has put together a video playlist of all the CPU's reviewed so far for you, click below to watch and scroll through the ones you want to see.
This 2014/15 CPU Hierarchy Chart shows you from the top tier high end CPU to the low end for both Intel and AMD.
*Intel Extremes or 'X' and Intel 'K'= unlocked CPU Multiplier *AMD 'FX' and 'Black Editions' = unlocked CPU Multiplier *Across Tiers, higher lines indicate more powerful cpus and models starting from the left to right indicate older to newer faster cpu models at that level.
