Struggling between AMD or Intel system.
I've been working with Mac system for the last 3 years and want to have some change. (that MacPro belongs to my boss and I just went in to his office and kicked his @ss so now I need a new computer to work for me ONLY)
Looking at both Intel i7 3770 or the AMD FX-8150.
I'm going to run both PS CS6 and LR4 (and maybe some AI and ID, but not alot) on this machine with Canon EOS 6D RAW files. I do mostly product and family shot so I don't think I'll send in more than 400 RAW files each time.
If I use Intel, I'll go for H77 chipset
If I go for AMD, I'll use FX990 chipset
Either one or the other, I'll fit in with 16GB RAM, Radeon 6570 2GB DDR3, 250GB SSD and bunch or HDDs. (NO OVERCLOCK)
OK, so what do you guys think?
Physically 8 cores @ 3.6Ghz but 125W and 32nm transistor tech (AMD)
4 Cores with HT @ 3.4Ghz but only 77W and 22nm transistor tech (Intel)
