Which is better - Intel or AMD Processor?
Intel high-end processors out perform AMD but also more expensive!
There is no doubt that both Intel and AMD are great CPU manufacturers. However, if price is not important then Intel is the preferred option even they are more expensive but the performance is better.
The exception to this is when you look at the Intel Celeron processors. AMD Sempron out performs the Intel Celeron and is cheaper in price. Now if you looking to buy a CPU on a small budget then AMD is the way to go.
The following is the comparison chart summary for AMD vs Intel processor

However, both AMD and Intel processors support a lot of cross compatible hardware. Sure the CPU and motherboards are platform specific, but you can share memory (RAM), video cards and other peripherals.
To conclude, I would say Intel wins on the high end. AMD wins on the low end. In the middle, it's a toss up. So, if you are on a budget or just a normal user go for AMD.......
