    Re: AMD or Intel for engineering PC?

    C_mitra speaks wisely. The CPU is only part of the issue so to a large degree the answer depends on the whole computer architecture. Also bear in mind that PCs are general purpose computers and run a wide variety of operating systems and programs so a direct comparison is difficult. When I hear people singing the praises of AMD though, they use their computers almost entirely for gaming, not engineering and I think the AMD chips are optimized in that direction rather than across a broader range of uses. Personally, I'm staying with Intel on all my 'work' machines although I do have an AMD based laptop (given to me by someone who gave up with it and upgraded to Intel!).

    It's better to share your questions and answers on Edaboard so we can all benefit from each others experiences.

    My friends at IMST run a large simulation cluster for electromagnetic analysis using both Intel and AMD machines. For entry level CPUs, they like the AMD Ryzen for its performance/cost ratio.

    AMD processors are quite prone to dusty and hot temperature. And from where you belong, it is better to use Intel Processor in your PC. Increase your RAM to 16GB and use hard disk with good data transfer rate

    At least with a lap-top you don't have to start with your graphics cards and work backwards !!

    FWIW, if you have ample RAM and core threads, you can add an external USB graphics module and display to side-step several work-flow issues...
