Intel vs AMD: Which Would Zombot Use for Brains?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 5 comments

Don't worry, your ARM-based mobile device will be safe from the brain-eating zombots.

While Judgement Day came and went on August 29, 1997 and there was no uprising of the machines, that doesn't mean that it might not still happen. If it's not just sentient computers that we're worried about, there could always be a zombie apocalypse. While I feel fairly well armed to deal with zombies after watching Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead and playing lots of Dead Rising, I'm not sure what I would do in a Zombot Apocalypse.

Thankfully, it seems that Zombots might not know what to do either – at least not without consulting our latest CPU benchmarks.

    Since Zombot scares the **** out of everybody, he won't have to pay. That means he should grab a 980X hexa-core rather than something AMD-made.

    Would dressing up as Zombot work?

    Silmarunya you seem to imply Intel is better? DO YOU POSSESS A BRAIN?

    Silmarunya is right from what I have seen, intel has the edge on top performance. Whilst AMD has the edge on performance per watt.

    Well a bot with an intel brain would achive inteligence capable of dominating us first... but without and AMD brain it would take too many resources to eat up the rest of the world...

    nicely said ^^. I think we'l have to wait and to see how the AMD Phenom x6 and quads (with lower TDP) turn out, not forgetting the ph975. Though im thinkin you could smarten zombot up with server cpus :)
