I think my main reason for the Intel preference comes from the bad old days of AMD being behind in lithographic tech, and their chips running hotter and sucking more juice as a result. Or before that when their FP processing sucked.

Of course, that's all in the past (I think?)

But I've followed Intel CPUs over AMD because of it, and I just have a good feel for what a good Intel is vs a bad one, and I don't have the same feel for AMD - at least not yet. So I don't really know what I'm buying. How much cache is enough for an AMD 12core? for example. I can figure out baselines for intel's chips based on past experience and review knowledge i've accrued at say overclock.net. I haven't done that same legwork on AMD over the years so their lineup is largely opaque to me.

And maybe it's time i changed that. I'll give the ryzens a look.
