Intel or AMD CPU?

Post by deepakdeshp » Wed Sep 12, 2018 7:18 am

Amd CPUs are better when all present cores are considered whereas Intel are better if a single core performance is considered. Amd are cheaper than Intel.
So what would be better for a mint machine with no gaming. Any thoughts?

You'd probably be better off deciding what you need to achieve and selecting the processor from there. I run both AMD and Intel Processors in my home network and neither has any advantage to my needs which are basic; i.e.: Word processing, Spreadsheet, Database, Surfing and basic file serving. If your needs are minimal, pick the most affordable solution.
Kernel: 4.15.0-46-generic x86_64 bits
Desktop: Cinnamon 3.8.9
Distro: Linux Mint 19 Tara

Laptop HP-ProBook-470-G2 8Gb RAM SSD
Server AMD Phenom 9650 - GEForce 9400GT 6Gb RAM
+ three other Mint machines
Out of my mind - please leave a message
