    AMD makes great strides in European preference survey

    Survey indicates that, where a CPU preference is shown, 60 per cent of buyers choose AMD.

    Nice to see AMD getting some mindshare, but I would love to know what percentage is "Don't care". For the general public, I suspect it is a large majority.

    Unless they are "tech illiterate" you'll be surprised of how many are shilled towards a brand.

    Whilst true, the brand can often be Dell or similar

    You mean reviews and data that shows one brand is better than another? Or do you actually mean "Shill" as in to act or work for someone and to "shill" on their beahalf?

    that survey is 10,000 people, so I guess some might be influenced...

    but on the whole, if you read the reviews and benchmarks across the globe....I think people are voting for AMD CPU because of factual wins

    Re: AMD makes great strides in European preference survey

    It makes sense though right - at the moment, Intel and AMD are almost neck and neck on performance for most consumer applications (with Intel only edging it by 1 or 2 % at the high end...so basically even), but at a lower price point.

    If buying a new CPU right now, it wouldn't make sense to buy intel for most people or consumers. This is likely to change dramatically next year IF intel release some new chips that actually move the needle again, but that's very much a big "IF" at the moment. That said for many of us it doesn't make sense to buy a new CPU anyway right now - I am still rocking a skylake i7 and would see only a 7-8% performance benefit by moving to a 3900X or 9900K, so unless I needed lots of threads (which I don't, my PC is used for gaming..) then I would be mad to buy a new chip right now.

    Still, nice to see that a poll matches real world stats/experiences for a change

    Of course, I tried to post and it disappeared again. Work PCs are fun.

    Try Googling whether AMD or Intel is better. The results are just plain wrong.

    Unless people know what they are buying, then they tend to be stuck on one brand... take iPhone for an example, over priced semi locked designer item... and people buy it because they do not know any better or it is trending or whatever.

    Its amazing to say most advertising to the general public is intel products, ie recent PC world adverts of laptops 'with the latest generation intel processor'.

    Re: AMD makes great strides in European preference survey

    just wondering: if intel performs the same as a 7nm AMD cpu what if the intel CPU is 7nm?

    20+ years of most computer adverts featuring that little "Intel Inside" jingle had the desired effect on the general public.

    It asked about the buying preferences of technology enthusiasts, early adopters and influencers who read EHA publications.
    I suspect that the percentage of "Don't care" would be quite low given the surveyed population.. which is -not- the general public.

    Though given that, it's not too surprising AMD does quite well at the moment. Surely this population sample would have commented favourable of AMD during the early-middle Athlon days?

    And I would also expect the outcome to change again if Intel becomes decisiviely dominant again.
