Because of the monopoly Intel enjoys in processor market, they are way costlier than their competitors.

But recently AMD giving good fight with Intel with some very good processors in terms of performance & cost

Take two laptops of similar configuration but one with Intel & other with AMD processor

Here is an live example (From Flipkart)

Lenovo with Intel Processor

Lenovo Ideapad S145 Intel Core i3 10th Gen (4 GB/1 TB HDD/Windows 10 Home, 15.6 inch, 1.85 kg, MS Office)₹32,990

Lenovo with AMD Processor

Lenovo Ideapad S145 AMD Ryzen 3 (4 GB/1 TB HDD/Windows 10 Home, 15.6 inch, 1.85 kg, MS Office)₹29,990

So 3000 savings if you choose AMD processor over Intel

How about performance of AMD over Intel

It may be against the general belief but AMD Ryzen series processors are far better in compared to Intel i series (i3, i5…) processors

To get better idea, Google the reviews comparing AMD Ryzen series with Intel’s i series

How to choose the right AMD equivalent of Intel’s i3, i5 & i7 processors ?

Thanks to heavy marketing by Intel, most people are familiar with Intel i3, i5 or i7 processors but they don’t know much about AMD processor series

I guess AMD realised this challenge. Thats why they came up with an interesting naming convention

AMD Ryzen 3 is competitor for Intel’s i3 processor
AMD Ryzen 5 is competitor for Intel’s i5 processor

you get the idea right ?

I myself used AMD processors for years without facing any issues. Go for AMD & save some money..!
