Linus Torvalds, an Intel processor workstation that he has used for 15 years, and Linux authors now say Intel is dead to him. He was last yearAssembledTorvalds, a new workstation with AMD thread Ripper 3970x, is nowI am very satisfied with AMD CPU。
At the real world Technologies Forum, Torvalds said that Intel's math costs five times as much to get twice the CPU, while AMD's thread Ripper costs twice as much as twice the CPU. Amd doesn't try to squeeze users and limit the functionality of non server chips as Intel does. Such as thread tearing can support ECC memory. ECC memory chips can detect errors in memory. Torvalds said that ECC is still essential for kernel development. They have encountered many unexplained kernel errors, which are likely caused by memory errors.
