18 Core Intel Processor in 2015


 

Intel has been in the lead for longer than I can remember, I think it was back in 2006 that AMD could compete core-for-core with Intel.

ASUS Radeon R9 290x DirectCU II Images Surface


 

The AMD Radeon R9 290x is a beast when it comes to both performance and hardware. The only drawback is the high power envelope creates a lot of heat and the vapor chamber heatsink used on the reference cards simply could not handle the load.
