AMD vs. Intel

  1. 1. Which processor do you have and how does it perform in Squad?

    • My AMD Processor performs well in Squad with good FPS. I operate on Moderate to High Graphics or better.
      2
    • My AMD Processor performs poorly in Squad with low FPS. I operate on Low to Moderate Graphics or worse.
      4
    • My Intel Processor performs well in Squad with good FPS. I operate on Moderate to High Graphics or better.

(Little DISCLIAMER: I'm not trying to pick a fight or participate in any war with users and their builds. I'm just making a point. Attack the post at will, it wont change it.)

 

So after owning Squad and other games (new and old) for some time now, I've noticed something that's pretty common nowadays...

 

AMD Processors under-performing in games.

 

This forum is littered with questions, comments, and concerns about in-game performance, but I think someone needs to hit the nail on the head so all this talk about AMD vs. Intel is over. I have an AMD FX Eight Core 8350 Black Edition APU. It's Intel Competitor being the Intel i7 4770K (I do not own it, but I know a lot about Intel and AMD as an IT and Computer Science wizard.). My build is also equip with 8GB RAM and a GeForce GTX 960 GPU with 2GB VRAM and never had issues. In many games, the AMD processor handles well along side with the Intel Processor. However, with Squad, it's a whole different story. 

 

Is the AMD Processor worst for Squad? YES. And this stands for other games as well (except for some). Only continue if you want to get into specs.

 

The AMD Processor line is known to have one "big thing" over Intel... The amount of cores the processors have. However this still doesn't peak any performance because Intel gets more in depth with their processors and manufacture them better. 

 

Intel's Specs over AMD: More Energy Efficient, Much faster single-core int speed, Much faster single-core fp speed, Much faster quad-core int speed, Much faster quad-core fp speed, Slightly faster multi-core int speed, Much faster multi-core fp speed, and the overclocked settings compared to AMD also almost adds 50% more effective power to the results.. The Intel i7 4770K has an overall effective speed of 78%. Which is 39% BETTER than AMD. Not just for gaming too... In proper English; Intel's cores are more 'intelligent' and can solve equations and tasks the games or programs throw at them MUCH faster than AMD can. So in this case, more cores is not better. It's actually a waste. So this means Intel is a far superior CPU with a slightly more heavy price tag. You get what you pay for with AMD... Not bashing AMD in any way.

 

Participate in the polls if you'd like :) I hope that the game can be optimized for better performance on AMD APU's if possible.

Oh boy, have you seen Ryzen, FX was a failure in all aspects. Ryzen beats Intel at most things at a much better price, temperatures and power consumption.
