This is the second part of our "Needs to Fix" series and it's now AMD's turn. As the underdog, AMD has far more reason to play nice and you could argue they've been forced into doing many of the things we want Intel to do because of their smaller market share. We don't believe AMD is a saint, it's still a big company trying to accomplish what most businesses should: make money.
Today we're looking at high speed storage performance by comparing AMD and Intel mainstream desktop chipsets with ADATA's latest and greatest XPG SX8200 960GB SSD, one of today's favorites drives among enthusiasts, perfect for comparing the storage performance of AMD's X470 and Intel's Z370 chipsets.
Intel announces Core i9 laptop processor, new 8th-gen desktop CPUs, four extra 300-series chipsets, more
When Intel raced out 8th-gen Coffee Lake CPUs last year, they did so with a single chipset, the high-end Z370. Now 6 months later Intel is finally unleashing their more budget friendly chipsets which includes the B360, which we're taking a look at today. So what's there to know?
The Z170 chipset has been available for some time now, but due to Intel's staggered launch of Skylake-S, other chipsets from this generation have just recently become available. In addition to the Z170, there are now five other consumer chipsets: the H170 and H110 for consumers and the B150, Q150, and Q170 for business. We explain the differences between them side-by-side.
