that's cause someone said how much of a difference amd did.
well.. they sell 50% more cores for about 500% more price.
(amazon prices without tax don't count outside usa)
You have to know this is false. If you insist on the "AMD is 50% more expensive" argument then at least have the decency to compare apples to apples.
If you are starting with a Intel quad core part, then compare it to a AMD quad core part.
Intel 6 core parts are NOT 50% cheaper than AMD six core parts.
Intel 10500 is about 200-220 us dollars right now (Amazon, newegg, eBay, whatever)
It compares VERY favorably against a Ryzen 3600, they trade blows.
The 3600 also sells for about $200 anywhere you look.
Now a Intel 10500 gets absolutely "smashed" byt a Ryzen 5600x. In every single metric.
There is no comparison here as the 5600x punches well above it's weight and is close to if not, on par with a 3700x or a 10700k.
The 5600x does sell for quite a bit more than the 10500 but like I said before---It also PERFORMS much better.
Now if you don't want to pay more for more performance, that is up to you. But don't try to compare six core CPUs to 4 core CPUs, it's silly and doesn't fool anyone.
And yes I used Amazon for pricing here in the US. Other markets will vary but I'm not aware of anywhere where the pricing you suggest is happening, it might be that Intel chips are magically half the price in your country...I doubt it. But hey if they are then buy them all day, I don't blame you.
But clearly that isn't the norm worldwide, so don't act like it is.
