    Why do you ask? I've not heard of any software not working with AMD.

    There was an oversight in an earlier version of ACR where a certain functionality was not supported in AMD machines, but that oversight was very quickly corrected.  I don't even remember exactly what it was, but it's nothing to be concerned about now.

    Don't have any facts either, but if similar processors are compared I would be supriesed if a lay person could  tell the difference.

    Go to this website http://www.cpubenchmark.net/ and type in the CPU's you are considering.  It will give you the relative speed in a real life test.

    Should add the question, does having the fastest processor really matter?  Bridge is more processor dependant, but Photoshop is more RAM dependant.  Then you have the other programs to consider also.  But even so, will you see any difference?  Depends how much stress you put it to.  For the normal user I would guess you would never see it.  You have to weigh the cost of increased processor speed with your expected gain.

     

    My CPU was a middle choice 2 years ago.  Probably slow by todays standards but have no complaints.  The Passmark rank is 5004.

    That is almost twice as fast as mine.  You will only need fast speed if you are working with rendering gigabyte images in 3D as an example, or rendering hi res video.  Is this what you want to do?
