Core for core at the same clock speed, Phenom II was near equal to Intel's Core 2.
So, if Bulldozer loses to Phenom II at the same clock speed, you get lower single threaded performance than a Core 2 Duo from 2006.
"AMD FX...Ahead of time"
Yeah, check maybe 6 years behind.
I am well aware that multi-threaded performance is important too, and naturally 32nm processors can overclock higher but calling Bulldozer ahead of time is just nonsense.
PS. I have better things to be a fan of, than CPU companies. Also, I've bought 3 AMD cpus and 2 gpus these last 3 years, so don't call me a fanboy, OK?
