Regarding Advanpix Multiprecision Toolbox, in particular, would there be any disadvantage at all to its operation on an AMD cpu?


I am not aware of any disadvantages. At least we do not treat AMD any different in our code.

The basic rules is: more CPU cores = higher speed.

If we would compare absolutely equivalent Intel vs. AMD processors (frequencies, number of cores, caches all are the same) - there might be a slight drop in speed if you use Windows.

That is because we use Intel C++ Compiler on Windows, as it produces faster binary code for Intel CPUs.
