AMD or Intel®

Updated: May 8

Holoware Workstation has been designed to support the desktop processors AMD Ryzen PRO and Intel Series.

Should you use AMD or Intel® CPU? This face-off between the two has been for a long time now. But still, this question always pops up when you plan to buy a desktop processor. The answer to this is both simple and harder – Do you need to go fast? Is graphical performance important? Affordability? Flexibility? Do you spend most of your time playing games, or are you simply searching for a lightweight processor that allows you to multitask while doing Internet browsing? To assist you to select a processor, you should be able to answer these questions.

AMD Versus Intel® – Performance

Earlier AMD CPUs were considered the best option as cost-effective and entry-level processors of the market, but that changed with AMD Ryzen 3000 and AMD Ryzen 5000. While AMD still represents great value for the money, it is an excellent choice for students, budget gamers, and computing novices — powerful and fast. It has “overclocking” graphic cards which increases its speed and adds brilliant colors and more threads to its performance making it above Intel® on just about everything one is looking for in a processor.

AMD Versus Intel® – Security & Safety

Intel® and AMD have just gained a new dimension since more consumers start to ask which PCs, data, and online operations are best protected by CPUs.

CPUs of AMD are safe to the following, including the latest Ryzen and Epyc processors:

  1. Meltdown (Spectre v3)

  2. Specter v3a

  3. LazyFPU

  4. TLBleed

  5. Specter v1.2

  6. L1TF/Foreshadow


  8. SpectreRSB

  9. MDS attacks (ZombieLoad, Fallout, RIDL)

  10. SWAPGS

As we can see, AMD’s CPUs seem considerably more capable compared with Intel®’s processors to deal with speculative execution threats.

AMD Versus Intel® – Pricing & Profitability

Over the last few years, overall sales of Intel® and AMD have risen, even if the latter faced heavy competition. Both companies recorded greater performance in 2020 as a result of the pandemic surge in sales.

In terms of revenue growth, however, AMD rose by 45% far quicker than Intel®’s by 8%. The growth disparity was due to AMD’s debut of the new Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPUs, combined with Intel®’s drop in data center chips and chips.

The following five years are likely to see AMD grow faster than Intel®’s 7% growth rate as Intel® seeks to catch up at a quicker rate of 19%.

With the operational issues, Intel® continues to encounter, its margins have fallen in recent years.

By comparison, AMD could not compete with Intel® just for the price with better CPUs being created. In recent years, this resulted in better margins which resulted in higher revenue for the corporation. In recent years, the high performance of AMD has led to its share price.

If you think AMD is growing quickly and can manufacture better chips than Intel®, please consider AMD.

Why is the security of hardware important?

Hardware security safeguards against theft and electronic intrusion and damage to machine and peripheral hardware. Physical security on site can be as straightforward as limiting mission-critical computers in a closed room and restricting access only to licensed persons.

The primitive security aspects of hardware have a significant role to play in assuring confidence, integrated circuits, and electronic systems integrity and authenticity.

Why is design security based on hardware essential to all applications?

The integrated security ICs today can offer an easier and cheaper means of integrating your designs in early times into advanced security layers, encryption algorithms support, manipulative detection, etc.

What are the hardware security risks??

Common security hazards for hardware,

  1. Passwords default. This is a problem for low-cost IoT and hardware, which employ default passwords out-of-the-box…

  2. Local access is unprotected. …

  3. Firmware/BIOS/Unified Firmware Extensible Interface outdated devices.

  4. Custom chipsets made for use.

  5. Encryption deficiency.

In the end, there is no “best” answer to the AMD versus Intel® question. Both have problems and strengths. However, a CPU that meets your demands better can be found.

Holoware Workstation has been designed to support the desktop processors AMD Ryzen PRO Series that enable companies to crash data and create content, financial workloads, edit media, and run multiple applications providing high-performance, high-quality, and reliable with 7nm technology.
