Any thoughts on AMD CPUs and Radeon graphics being generally more comfortable than Intel's offerings?
Do you mean AMD CPUs with integrated graphics (henceforth APUs) or systems with AMD CPUs and Radeon graphics cards?
In the latter case the chosen CPU should be irrelevant. That being said AMD CPUs do offer better performance per watt than Intel's offerings.
I think we all are more curious regarding eye strain comfort than perfomance 😁
magiks Not sure if you got the meaning of my post, but assuming you're using a CPU that may have integrated graphics, and said integrated graphics in that case are disabled and you're using a separate video card, the choice of CPU is irrelevant.
If there's something funny going on with motherboards compatible between AMD and Intel CPUs. I haven't seen it.
Yes, but I'm not a gamer and tend to buy systems without dedicated graphics cards. So how does the integrated AMD graphics perform against Intel's when it comes to eye strain and eye comfort?
That's a different question entirely. Something that someone would need to test with the right equipment.
Also, there are more reasons then "gaming" to buy a system with a CPU and a separate graphics card. The AMD APUs have a "ceiling" of how fast of a CPU is integrated in the chip, etc.
I have not seen many reports regarding AMD CPUs (with integrated AMD card as main graphics) eyestrain comfort on this forum yet. I am thinking about buying and testing one, but I am bit afraid because of no ditherig program possibility there. Ditherig is not making Intel's perfect, but at least we have one thing which is helping us for sure, at least more or less. But AMDs are more and more popular nowdays and they already became real competition for Intel. There is a possibility that they gonna to be used in business machines aswell. It is interesting, considering problems with using diterig in business laptops from security point of view.
Yes, I was thinking about a machine like this: "Dell Optiplex 5055 Small Form Factor, AMD Ryzen 3 2200G PRO X4 3.4GHz, 16GB Ram 256GB SSD, Windows 10 pro English/Spanish (Renewed)"
I assume the graphics is integrated like most Intel business machines.
K-Moss I assume the graphics is integrated like most Intel business machines.
K-Moss I'm also looking into purchasing a Dell Optiplex PC (used). If it's a desktop PC, I think, Intel shouldn't do any dithering. That should be left up to the monitor. I'll report back my findings.
Do you know if on AMD laptops exists any way to disable dithering? (Like ditherig on Intel ones)
