Differences in AMD and Intel Tech

Hi Everyone,

I know a fair amount about the technology in intel chips like Hyperthreading and TurboBoost and how they affect performance in a PC but I'm not too sure about the tech in AMD Chips. Is anyone able to explain the differences between the tech in the CPU's and how it benifets performance (without getting into a debate of which is better or worse)?

Thanks in Advance :),

To put it as bluntly as possible, intel uses less cores for its cpu's but each core is very stong. AMD uses more cores, but they are weaker. Also AMD does not use hyperthreading at all. The numbor of cores is the number fo threads you have when it comes to amd.

If you cant pick out the differences when looking at these images then its beyond your comprehension.
