Intel vs AMD – Desktop Quad Core Processors comparison – Price vs Performance ratio 1


 

The performance/Price ratio is the third column and the bigger the number means you are getting better value for your money.The processors show a reasonably better value than . ’s  Q8200 is a good value for money chip. These values are based on current retail prices  ( May 29 2009) in the assembled computer market.

Name                              value     Performance/Price (bigger the better)

Intel Core 2 Quad Core Q9550 –          4179                                 – 0.28 (Performance / Price ratio , Bigger the better)
Intel Core 2 Quad Core Q9400 –          3643                                 – 0.29
Intel Core 2 Quad Core Q8200 –           3183                                 – 0.36
Intel E7400 –                       1852                                  – 0.31
Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 (laptop) –      1699                                   – NA
Dual Core E5400 –                                     1606                                  – 0.47 (Best Performance/Price ratio)

To put things into perspective let me give some more common numbers

the top of the line Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 has benchmark value of 1699.So its not giving half the performance of its desktop counterparts.

Now lets look at AMD lineup for reference

X4 9650                       – 2615               – 0.39
AMD Phenom X4 9850                         – 2790             – 0.33
AMD Phenom X4 9950                      – 3016                – 0.35
AMD Phenom X4 920                         – 3290               – 0.31
AMD Phenom X4 940                         – 3788               – 0.35

The ratio comparisions show AMD X4 9650, AMD Phenom X4 9850 are doing good. But the best numbers are there for Intel Quad Core Q8200.
