I agree with Petr V. Why give up multi-threading (eight of them!) and patronize the company that has held back progress so long, when you can buy much more advanced chips from AMD? For an invisible FPS difference in some game that's probably played 1% of the time? I say: buy AMD if you possibly can. They've worked a miracle, are delivering real features on every front, and deserve every benefit of the doubt - and we need them in the market!. Don't be swindled by Intel's endless marketing tricks and misinformation, which they rely on more every year.
