And no, Intel quads are still faster than AMD 8 cores no matter how much you want to deny it.
Disable HT and try it again. No matter how superior you feel with Intel, it's HT is what sets it apart because HT can run more threads than AMD single core. That doesn't make Intel better it only proves that Software is not where it SHOULD be. Most games cannot run more than 2 or 3 cores at most.
Intel is better than AMD in graphic rendering this is known and a given. But the drivers are not there yet to support the new CPU. Give AMD a bit and I bet the numbers do a complete 180 in comparisons between BD and anything else currently in production.
The whole point that you're missing is that it's a BRAND NEW component. Of course it's gonna have some issues. Nobody has anything worked out for it yet. Hur Dur.
Oh and by the way, did you see me name call? You can take your snide remark and blow it out your ass. Have a nice day.
