Which CPU do you use 2010?
AMD in the past, AMD now, and most likely AMD for the foreseeable future.
I use whichever is best at the time in my price range. i do like to support the under dog amd but the intel processer was much better so seemed stupid to.
Voted "Other", I use both.
Intel atm, but id have no problem getting an AMD, intel just happens to be what im running atm.
AMD Athlon 64 and Athlon.
Still gonna use my Intel Q6600 2.4 ghz @ 3.3 ghz. I bought it soon as they arrived in UK ... hmm must be nearly 3 years ago now. OC'ed it to 3.5 ghz straight off the bat ... but in the end stuck with @ 3.3 ghz rock solid. Definitely the best CPU I've had so far ... see it's still quite comparable to the top spec CPU's ... even after 3 years. So I don't feel the need to upgrade anytime soon.
(Gotta add OT, it has been sat inside a Gigabyte motherboard. Impressed with the reliability. No bluescreens or over-volting needed to maintain the OC. Will definitely be buying another)
Currently I have an Athlon X2 4200+ (939) and Athlon X2 4800+ (AM2). And unless I get an Intel system for free, I won't be upgrading or switching.
never had an intel, started with amd 3500+, 5200x2, 6000x2, 9850 phenom, 940 phenom be.
Same Intel CPUs I was using in 2005 - single core Pentiums - good enough for me (since I'm still running WinXP).
Running AMD's, I have no problem with Intels and have owned a few my self, just personal preference is AMD's, I have my Phenom X4 being built and posting this from my trusty Atlhon XP 2000+ OC'd from stock 1.67Ghz to 2.2Ghz, still surprisingly quick, even with Win 7 installed.
This was my first custom build, back in 2007, and I went for the Q6600...it seemed to be all the rage in Quad core at the time.
However, I run mine at stock standard speed, i.e. 2.4 GHZ ... since I am not into gaming, and besides I don't know anything about overclocking.
Besides, when I get my next system...I will go with whatever current CPU is available, which is like overclocking without the risk.
Still using my ancient Pentium 4 630 (Prescott) 3.0ghz single core with hyper threading.
All I need for the rudimentary tasks I engage in.
Intel, because their chipsets (and built in GFX in particular) are better supported under Linux.
Two systems, one Intel and one AMD.
But I m saving money for i5 750 or i7 860
Switched over from Intel to AMD about 6 years ago. Never going back.
AMD Quad Core x64
Both... Intel & AMD.
AMD Turion 64 x2 Mobile Technology TL-50 (1.6GHz, 2 x 256KB L2 cache) on my Acer Aspire 5100-5033.
