It's been a while since I've posted but I had a question! It's about that time again, time to upgrade my cpu/motherboard/ram setup. Currently I'm running a phenom II x6 @ 3.2 with 16gb of ddr3. Clock per clock an AMD 8150 would give me a 50% increase. I've used AMD for a long time now since Athlon's, but I've heard the landscape is quite different, and I'm not sure what to do. A bit about the application, it's a lot of number crunching and scientific computing, numerical analysis, etc. How do current gen Intel and AMD chips compare when it comes to computation intensive performance?
I appreciate any input! Thanks!
