Is AMD Quad Core good or bad?

Postby enderkevin13 » Fri Nov 13, 2015 6:24 pm

Hello. As you probably guessed from the subject, my laptop is broken and I need a new one.
Basically I need something around 400$ just and want a decent processor to use.

I was thinking of getting the one listed in the subject, but I'm not too sure if it's worth it.
Any suggestions or is it good?

(Did I mention it's an asus?)

Really really depends

Phenom x4 HORRIBLE
Phenom II x4 okay
Bulldozer HORRIBLE
etc.

also they're way behind Intel right now unfortunately. 1996's repeating. Just get an i5.

I think you might want to wait for AMD to leave the CMT reign, which maybe soon - depending unless they overhaul it with pure optimizations? Though, I don't quite follow closely on their latest CPU developments. Intel's latest CPU's far beats AMD's CPU's because of better handling with SMT; despite that I am excluding any optimizations within the Intel's CPU architecture. In short, as of right now, I would suggest on sticking to Intel i-series for the time being.

Try to find a laptop with Intel CPU and Nvidia GPU.

I can't really tell you what to buy, though Gez's suggestion shouldn't be ignored if your budget allows it. Perhaps you could take a gander at newegg, if it's available for you.

An i3 is fine for a laptop, too.

The thing is, there are laptops that have great processors but they have Windows 10. Should I go for it?

Yes. Windows 10 is actually pretty good.
