The Intel chips posted so far do seem to have a significant performance advantage over my AMD. I've been building my home PCs with AMD chips for at least 25 years (absolute cutting edge not normally being required).
I expected I might be low down the totem on this but I am suprised in the PFPS rates you guys are getting.
I do wonder if Accurc could be using intel optimised function libraries that are not working as well for AMD (conspiracy - lol!). I went out and bought a GTX 760 yesterday. The sim works even better but no suprise my PFPS only jumped up 9 points to 409.
We need more AMD data or I might end up building an intel machine and that will turn out to be a very expensive sim.
