Intel SSDs - Configured for Intel CPUs or Excellent with AMDs too?

Hi all

Yes, that's about it really...

Advice in a previous thread (many thanks) has got me leaning towards Intel.

So sorry for the silly question, but are they excellent with AMDs too?

I have a X4 965 3.4 GHz and it's running great (for me anyway).

Many thanks to all who give advice/opinions.

Best

A hard drive is a hard drive. They are not "configured" for any one system or processor or computer. They operate on the SATA standard which all computer platforms comply with also (older drives operate on the PATA standard, but that is an old story!). A new hard drive will work perfectly fine in an Intel or AMD system, on Windows, MAC, Linux, and more.

This is not to be confused with formatting. A hard drive can be formatted specially for different operating systems. And typically new hard drives come preformatted NTFS for Windows. But that does not change the fact that the bare, unformatted drive can work in any system using the same connection standard (SATA, PATA, etc.)

Hope that helps.

Yep...the motherboard will determine the compatibility and top speeds of the SSD, not the processor.

Another voice agreeing with the statements that have been made. An SSD or HDD could care less what processor you use.

And in the FWIW department, I have an Intel X-25M SSD. I used to run it on an AMD system, then built several Intel systems and ran it on them. I saw no difference in performance on any system. It ran, and still runs, well on whatever system you have if it is set up right.
