Intel has more brand name recognition for sure. But AMD has some great prices.

i would prefer Amd bcos it can benefit most from multi core rendering.

My friend bought AMD and its working perfect. He is using it for Rendering purpose so I don't know It this is good for server/VPS but I am sure that your customer will prefer to use Intel and maybe some of even leave your server If they will saw that you are using AMD.

Tastes differ, both companies are making great CPUs. AMD usualy has more cores, and Intel has multi-threading so it's usually depends on what you require from CPU. It's the same as comparing Radeon to Nvidia - it all depends on your tasks
AMD, 5GHz CPU, GPU dedicated servers and more

Both are great CPU's it depends on the end game a few years ago I'd say Intel all the way however AMD is back in the game and doing great things.

Most web hosting companies stick to using Intel over AMD. The main reason we use Intel is that there is more server variation offered with Intel then with AMD. Also, modern AMD CPU's are not supported yet by mainstream Linux distributions.

During an everyday workload AMD chip and the top end intel chip won't produce radically outcomes that's why AMD'S CPU'S at the mid range and lower end do tend to offer slightly better value intel chips...

Intel seems like the preferred choice for server deployment purposes. I will admit AMD is picking up some traction, though!

AMD is great for consumer grade CPU, and an excellent option for enthusiasts or gamers due the performance/price relation.

BUT, when we're talking about servers and enterprise use, Intel easily wins, hands down.
An Intel Xeon would perform better on heavy server tasks and is way more stable even than the best Threadripper from AMD.

But a Ryzen is excellent if you're one of those game streaming guys or something like that.

This will soon no longer be true.

AMD EPYC first gen (Zen) CPU's are not as fast as Intels on a per core comparison.

AMD EPYC Rome (Zen 2) is another story however. They have caught up with per core performance and have increased the number of cores up to 64 cores and 128 threads ! (Just imagine Dual CPU servers with 256 threads!).

We have used Intel up to now, but have seen their performance greatly reduced by all the security patches we have had to apply. Disabling hyper-threading has removed between 30 and 40% performance due to MDS vulnerabilities. AMD CPU's were not vulnerable to MDS because they have built in security that prevents this exploit which means that only Intel CPU's had to disable hyper-threading.

Intel needs to get it's game together if it want's to stay in the race. AMD is beginning to overtake them from a performance and security perspective. Their new CPU's (10nm) will be coming out soon. Hopefully this will allow Intel to catch up with AMD again.
