AMD vs Intel in the CPU Benchmark and Ranking tests at CPU Speed Pro

Just 2 years ago AMD was beating Intel in the processor speed charts with their then new dual core processor, the Athlon X2s. AMD were ahead of Intel at a time when Intel was still on the Pentium series, and everyone had an AMD CPU. The CPU comparison AMD vs Intel and speed test wars had just begun! The CPU shoot-out!

Two years ago, Intel released their own dual-core series CPUs, the Intel Core2Duo. The Core2Duo practically knocked every AMD CPU off the benchmarking charts. From overclocking capabilities to processing power, the Intel Core2Duo left AMD CPUs trailing. Since then, Intel has been always one step ahead of AMD, from quad-core CPUs to developing 45nm CPUs and beyond.

So, Intel is doing way better CPU ranking and benchmarking than AMD, right? You would think so but is that the whole truth? Intel's CPU passmark is greater than AMD at certain benchmarks, but when it comes to running an Intel CPU and AMD CPU side by side, with no overclocking going on, their benchmark speeds are close.

CPU Speed does not tell the whole story. You might have the best processor benchmark in comparison with your friends, but you may not notice that much of a difference in CPU performance between AMD vs Intel.

Intel will surpass AMD when it comes to overclocking and other high performance CPU settings, but when it comes to raw performance in a non-overclocked CPU configuration, some AMD CPUs actually come close or are even faster than Intel's CPUs.
