Intel versus AMD / servers and VMs

Published: Friday, March 1, 2019 written by Drew Jackson



Over the last three years, it has been fun to try and get the best price for the best performance. Between the designs, builds, and repairs, I believe the i7-8700K was the most amazing. The FX-8350 was a favorite for a while; though now I know more about the FX-8350 versus the i5 at the same time.
 
Still the FX-8350 makes me smile about how fast it was in multi-threaded multi-core operations.
 
I have tried all sorts of AMD processors, and now I am hooked on the Phenom AM2+ series and 8 to 16GB or RAM, and of course, the FX-8350 series was fun too.
 
What was the amazing I found was the i7-8700K processor and the performance experienced.
 
If the price were not such an issue, I would have an i7-8700K in every computer I touched. the FX-8350 was pretty slick too, but then I digress and recall the Dual Core E7500 series was amazing too.
 
Many of the virtual machines I am spinning up in testing, a quad core is necessary to split of some dual core VM VDIs and then some..
 
Comparison benchmarks are galore: just take a look at these.
