The history of competition between intel and amd has long been formed since the establishment of the two companies. Until now the two producers are still competing in the microprocessor chip products, of all products made by Intel and Amd they both have advantages and disadvantages, but each other fill each other’s shortcomings, therefore it is only natural that both of these producers could become excellent for IT fans in the microprocessor class, especially the Indonesian market.
Although at first AMD had imitated Intel’s technology, and because of this, there was a dispute between intel and Amd, then the results of the trial were won by intel and required Amd to develop its own processor technology without any interference from the intel. In the end this is what makes the market increasingly skyrocketing, we can see for ourselves that intel and amd can compete technologically, and both have advantages not shared by other competitors, but in certain cases AMD can outperform Intel.
Although both are still king in terms of marketing and sales in Indonesia, of course there are still some who are confused between the two, confused about choosing between Amd or Intel, confused which is good and good. The information we provide in the article about the differences between intel and amd is not to corner one producer, good and good choices are subjective choices, it is your own final choice, but in our opinion both of them are good and good depending on the needs of your computing activities.
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) was founded in 1968, a multinational company based in the United States, more precisely in Santa Clara, California. The company is famous for the design and production of microprocessors that focus on creating an integrated processor circuit.
Not only that, Intel also makes network cards, motherboard chipsets, components and other tools. The intel company has a highly advanced research project on all aspects of producing semiconductors, including one of them is MEMS. Intel has been publicly traded on NASDAQ with the INTC symbol. The intel company also has a slogan that is “Intel Inside”.
Intel microprocessor products:
1. Intel Core.
2. Intel Pentium.
3. Intel Celeron.
4. Intel Centrino.
5. Intel Pentium M.
6. Intel Server
Advantages of Intel Processor
Of all the processors made by Intel, we can conclude the advantages possessed by Intel processors, here are the advantages:
Power saving is one of the advantages of Intel processors, including one of them is an Intel Quad Core processor that is able to automatically improve its own performance when needed and is able to rest ourselves when the computer is in a state of silence.
Not easy to heat
Of the many processors made by Intel, almost all of them have technology that can automatically make the processor reduce its speed if the processor is too hot.
Intel Turbo Boost
This technology is on the core i5 and core i7 processors, where the processor will increase the core frequency performance in accordance with the needs of the user at that time. When there are applications that require high clockspeed, the processor will increase clockspeed at the maximum level.
Intel HD Graphics
Although this technology is only present on core i3, i5 and i7, at least this has become an advantage of Intel who has embed graphics in core-I graphics that also use High Definition (HD) technology.
The advantages of Intel processors based on other literature:
1. Intel has developed earlier than AMD, so Intel’s brand image is number one.
2. In the performance test, the Intel processor is not easy to heat faster than AMD.
The disadvantages of Intel processors are based on user descriptions:
1. In matters of graphics, Intel must add a graphics card again, especially in gaming and 3D programs.
2. Intel processor prices tend to be expensive in the market, according to the performance produced by the processor.
AMD (Advanced Micro Devices)
AMD (NYSE: AMD) is a multinational semiconductor company from the US, more precisely in Sunnyvale, California. The main products from AMD are microprocessors, motherboard chipsets, graphics cards (GPUs), processors for servers, processors for workstations, computer peripheral processors (PCs), processors for mobile and television (TV).
From Wikipedia sources, mentions AMD is the second largest global supplier of microprocessors based on the x86 architecture after Intel Corp, and the third largest supplier of graphics processing units.
AMD then acquired the ATI Technologies company in 2006 and expanded its technology. In 2011 AMD released the latest product that uses AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) technology, this technology which is still used on AMD’s microprocessor chipset.
AMD APU technology is a technology that combines processor units, northbridge chipsets, and Radeon Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) chipsets into one processor.
AMD microprocessor products:
2. AMD FX
3. APU A Series
4. APU G Series
5. Z Series APU
Advantages of AMD Processor:
Based on our experience and comments from the following users are the advantages of AMD processors:
1. Suitable for 64-bit based applications.
2. Cheaper price than Intel (Subjective) Processor.
3. Superior in graphics.
Weaknesses of the AMD Processor:
1. Hot fast
Because this was once a concern for AMD users, then AMD launched ICE Cooler technology to overcome these problems, the technology has been embedded in several ASUS products.
The difference between Intel and AMD is located in their respective products, especially the microprocessor semiconductor products, therefore the two manufacturers are competing with each other in terms of microprocessor technology, both of which have a unique and long history in terms of computerization. The proof is that computerized technology in Indonesia has never been far from Intel and AMD, especially the microprocessor.
