Never noticed linus as an amd fan, always kinda figured he was an nvidia guy especially considering when he did his personal build video series, it contained Intel CPU and gtx 480 sli, and he was kind enough to put them under water. That was a couple years back though.
that ''better feel'' on ur bro's pc, does he have an SSD and you use a regular hard drive? Cuz i went from 1055t phenom 6 core to i73770k early january, and man what a difference, and not in favor of the amd chip lol.
But the 3770k is twice the price :P So thats not very strange.
We use SSDs both of us ofcourse, same brand (intel 330). Same RAM at the same(ish) frequency, I use a email@example.com and he uses a firstname.lastname@example.org. I try to keep our rigs as much alike as possible to be able to make fair comparisons. Atm hes stuck at older cpu+mobo tech tho, but most like Ill be going Haswell and he'll be going steamroller on release, which will once again make benchmarking pretty interesting.
Im using a 120hz monitor atm, but thinking of going 21x9. In short because tripple monitor play at 2gb vram wont be great, but 21x9 shouldnt matter much. And when I do he'll be granted my 120hz, so we can have a nice comparison too
He got one of his friends interested in building too, yesterday he linked the build he'd gone with... a 660ti that cost 10% more than a 7950ghz edition... an intel i5-2320 (about €10 less than 3570k), an ASRock FATALITY mobo (because overclocking is important on i5s -.-), 900W psu, 1333mhz RAM and no SSD... Some people need to learn to read forums.
