Nice Picture from AMD

And even with those numbers AMD still cannot match those of Intel.

The Office FX addon is nice.

This chart looks impressive and shows AMD is on the right track.

Intel Core I7 is already one big failure of CPU with it's expensive price tag, expensive DDR3, Ripp-off Motherboard prices and all this cash gains users minimal performance gains over last generation Intel CPU junk. Intel I7is just another Gimmick.

Intel fanboys think AMD is financially crippled because they can't compete, but AMD's predicament is because of Intel's anti-competitive behavior. AMD are the company that has innovated, while Intel has sat back and stolen AMD's ideas. I want reliable and crash free computing so I choose AMD, INTEL SUCK!

6.3GHz Phenom II is due out soon. It looks like Intel is finished once and for all.

@Cupcake...

Sharikou says Intel copied every idea that is in the Core i7 but you say it is just a gimmick?

So I guess Intel copied all the gimmicky features from Athlon/Opeteron and kicked AMDs ass (figuratively) in all benches in the process. Sounds like they did a little more than copying if you ask me.

Douchebags. Both of you.

CupCake; using some of the same technical solutions as AMD is like using plastic containers for juice rather than paper. Intel knew it was possible to use plastic containers, but they chose another solution.

Some things can only be designed one way; of course Intel used somewhat the same design as AMD. It's like designing a nut cracker; you have to have something to crack the nut open. The many nut cracker functions has to be somewhat the same.

IMC, 64-bit tech and direct communication (call it whatever you want) are elementary differences in the design. Intel has known for centuries that such options would become a reality sooner or later. It's not like AMD all of a sudden had a genious plan that no one else had thought of.

If one of these elements can only work when designed the same way AMD did, Intel couldn't choose a very different solutions. I'm sorry if you still fail to see my point.

It's not like AMD came up with the big idea of integrating the memory controllers, or making cores communicate in a more direct way. These are all choices that for a long time have been options when designing a CPU.

When AMD chose to take several of them in use in their CPU design (which I agree, was an excellent choice by AMD), Intel had to do the same thing to be compeditive (but at a later point). AMD obvoiusly chose one of the best ways to implement them, and Intel could not choose a very different design in order to make it work. What I'm saying is that Intel would have done it the same way, even without looking at how AMD's design.

Fan boys lose some of their logic sense, in order to make things look the way they want. You're not getting any smarter by locking your direction of thoughts.
