Which at best very much revolves around the individual and their mind set.
Also what is best for one group can be completely useless for another, however after saying that here are a few observations.
AMD do not make any Chips these days they are now a Design House with no Manufacturing Facilities and as such can not provide any specific warranties to cover their designs.
Intel Design and Manufacture Chips and offer a better quality control and warranty over their entire product range. That's a simple observation as Intel can and AMD can not.
In the past AMD has always gone after the Big Bucks quickly and on every occasion has come close to going broke. Not a great way to do business and not a very good way to engender a lot of Confidence in their customers either I must say. While AMD Products may be technically better for groups of computer users it's not much good if they have a problem and are no longer around to provide restitution to those adversely affected.
Also with different Manufacturing Plants being owned by different companies it's impossible to have any real form of Universal Quality Control over all products that are marketed with the AMD Brand/Logo so a situation may arise where a certain Chip was improperly made in a factory and the Warranty is not honored as that Factory ceases trading and withdraws from the supply chain. Under circumstances like that it is unreasonable to expect any other manufacturing company to cover the warranty on a product that they did not make and received no money for.
Personally I like AMD Chips but they do have their limitations and depending on who are buying them I may recommend other products. For a Gamer who wants a cheaper system with lots of power they are great but for a business who wants reliability and as little down time as possible they may not be the best choice.
