Intel Presler Pentium D 920, Pentium D 930 slower than Athlon 64 X2 3800+

Xbitlabs did some tests, and found the 65nm Presler Pentium D 930 slower than the slowest AMD dual core, the Athlon 64 X2 3800+. An overclocked Presler Pentium D at 4GHZ is about 20% slower than the AMD's flasgship FX60 in some tests. It seems AMD's price premium over Intel is well justified.

The only reliable core duo test available today is the one from AnandTech. Which shows that Core Duo 2GHZ generally slower than Athlon 64 X2 3800+. We have covered it on this jorunal before, and we showed Core Duo as an inefficient architecture, as the X2 3800+ has only half the cache.
