Apparently some of the newest AMD processors currently blow intel out of the water although the new 9th generation I7 is supposed to be also very good.

Oh heck no.  my amd chip has 8 cores and can run two threads per core. Your info is way out of date.

Be careful when evaluating processor speed.  My understanding is that
AMD processors have only one core which means that even though an AMD
processor  may be rated at a speed of say, 3.5 gHZ, it may not be as
fast in real world use as a multicore Intel processor rated at the
same speed.

there are some laptop manufacturers that are happy to sell you
something slow and cheap even though you will be miserable.  You can
buy a brand new laptop today that will be slower than a 6-year-old
mid-range desktop if you aren't careful.

Use the system section of control panel to find out what processor
you have, then go here:

and search it out in the chart and get the speed.  Do the same with
any new computer you are looking at.
