AMD is a lot cheaper than Intel when it comes to cores.
AMD FX FX-9590 Black Edition
- 8 Cores
- 4.7 GHz
Intel Xeon E5-2687W V2
- 8 cores
- 3.4 GHz
That being said, the people I know recommend Intel processors because of the profound actual power compared to AMD, which I honestly don't believe.
Too bad I didn't know how cheap AMD was vs. Intel processors when I was building my own computer. ;-;
I'd recommend AMD, the processor I said for the comparison.
