  • (ask) AMD & Mother Board

    I would like to build an System.
    Did any of you have using AMD?

    What type of Processor ?
    And The motherboard?
    Chipset?

    and The result of course, and the suggestion?

    I would like to used NX or DV Storm XA.

      I personally have had a bad experience with AMD and pro audio / video use in the past, use the GV compatability list in combination with user system spec's to make a choice according to your budget. (listed with most users at the bottom of each post)

      Don't want to make a statement that all AMD systems don't work well, but not much price difference anymore with intel, the choice is yours .............

        Dont bash AMD, I have always used AMD without many problems....at first, there was a chipset problem, which was solved by using the 4in1 driver patch, but ever since, I had no problems whatsoever that was AMD related......my present system is a simple AMD, with no problems, and a buddy of mine has a great system, and he has no problems either.......like I say, my system is a cheapo, so I would not waste time giving you specs.

          be aware that lots of issues are now surfacing with AMD and XP Sp3

          this may only affect some users such as HP systems

            hi win..
            i just build AMD X2 6000+
            mboard gigabyte S2H (HDMI,firewire,DV-I onboard)
            2 gig DDR2 mem ... VGA nvidia 256mb DDR dual view (2x19" samsung)
            have been editing SDV & HDV in Edius 4.51c under vista premium system for 2 months..no problems what so ever...
            export 2 hours wedding footage is 1.5 X faster than my core2duo 2.4G same spec...so u decide ;)

              Intel

              hi,
              I have used both CPU's for many years, AMD are known for a good gaming cpu, the reason I recommend intel is that they are a lot more stable, not as many crashes, ect.

              Cheers

              P.S I think it comes down to each user's own choice, and what they can afford really.

                Most of my PC's are AMD. The difference at the moment is the latest INTEL quad processors are considerably faster at encoding in all the test reports and are very little difference in price if you build yourself. I am waiting for the Q9545 2.66Ghz processor now to build the next system. At the moment I would go Intel for these reasons. I have no stability problems with any of my AMD processors with any of the NLE's I have. Biggest issues are with machines with all sorts of software on them. My editing PC has just editing software no screen savers, no power management, no virus checkers, etc. If it isn't needed its turned off.

                  Hi Ron,
                  There is a big difference in the price of AMD and Intel cpu's, I do build my self as I own a computer buisness out here, and as I said earlier each to their own, This was my opion on using AMD, I just find that you don't get as many system errors with intel like you do with AMD cpu's, the intel's just seem to be more stable (not just for editing ect) but for everything. As for price on the CPU's I don't know who you are buying yours from then.

                  cheers

                    In my experience, it's not so much the CPU itself, but the motherboard chipsets that cause the issue.

                    Intel on Intel chipset is solid.
                    AMD on AMD chipset is solid (except for 760MP, but it wasn't totally the chipset at fault) but AMD stopped making chipsets. Hopefully the ATI/AMD melding will get us better chipsets.

                    I've had "iffy" stability with Intel CPUs on SiS and VIA-based motherboards.

                    And of course beyond the chipset, there's the BIOS of the individual manufacturer. Again, Intel makes their own motherboards, AMD does not (yet?).

                    Case-in-point, I had an NVIDIA-based motherboard from a seven-letter manufacturer. It never worked properly and the NVRAID BIOS got hosed simply from me making basic changes in the BIOS configuration. I got a replacement board - it had the same problems. I eventually gave up and got a NVIDIA-based motherboard from a four-letter manufacturer. Works like a charm.

                    So, in the end, it's as I usually say - "You pay either way, in time or in money."
                    If you get Intel CPU on an Intel motherboard, you pay in money.
                    If you get AMD CPU on a non-AMD/ATI motherboard, you pay in time to find one that's reliable.

                    Just for reference, my two servers are AMD, my primary desktop is AMD, my laptop is Intel, and a couple of other 24/7 machines are Intel, so I have a fairly even mix.

                      Steve my quotes on price were for similar encode performance. Intel is ahead of all the AMD processors for encoding regardless of price. As you keep coming down the encoding performance curve so that an AMD chip is similar then the price is not much different. Local RBC computing has Q6600 for $254 Can and AMD Phenom X4 9850 at $260Can both are quad core at about 2.5G. The newer Q9450 I am waiting for on backorder is $370Can. On a PC that will cost me about $1400 to make any difference here is irrelevant.
