PC’s with alternatives to Intel processors?



No doubt Intel is one of the most popular brand names in the microprocessor manufacturing, especially for PCs. But are some lots of other companies as well in the market who have produced microprocessors for PCs and embedded systems. A list of some of these companies, who are currently in business, or at least, were some time ago:

  • Intel
  • AMD
  • Via Technologies
  • Motorola
  • DEC
  • Transmeta
  • MIPS
  • Texas Instruments
  • National Semiconductor
  • NEC
  • IBM

Well other than Intel, only Amd is the processor, which is popular .You can always configure a computer system according to your choice and need. Now the list of laptops and desktops, having Processors other than Intel’s i.e. Amd are as follows:

  • HP – Pavilion 17.3" Laptop – AMD A8-Series
  • Toshiba – Satellite 15.6" Laptop – AMD A6-Series
  • HP – ENVY TouchSmart 15.6" Touch-Screen Laptop – AMD A10-Series
  • HP – Pavilion 17.3" Laptop – AMD A10-Series.
  • Lenovo – G50 15.6" Laptop – AMD A6-Series.
  • Toshiba – Satellite 2-in-1 13.3" Touch-Screen Laptop – AMD A4-Series​.
  • HP – Geek Squad Certified Refurbished 15.6" Touch-Screen Laptop AMD A8-Series.


A brief comparison with Intel: As AMD is the only option you left practically with, so you can compare Intel with AMD:

  • AMD is cheaper than Intel.

  • Overclocking is possible with AMD, unlike Intel.

  • Heavy gamers generally prefer Intel over other processors. There is a measurable difference in frame rate and latency for Intel and AMD chips, while running apps using any same type of graphics card.


Conclusion: If you want a computer just for regular purposes like surfing or emailing, you can go for any other cheaper option like AMD. But if you are a heavy user like multimedia/graphic designer or gamer, you should go for Intel high end Processors.
