Um.. in CPU terms or GPU terms? Cause I can believe it in GPU terms. Tough pill to swallow in CPU terms, by a looooooong shot.

Except it's not. There are numerous posts proving that here on OCN if you'd take the time to look. Clock for clock, instruction for instruction, Llano whoops up on BD. "L3" isn't everything.
Even Phenom I beats BD clock for clock.
(Oops, my bad, it has L3! All 2mb of it!)

Really? *A* benchmark? Cause I've seen tons of them. Mostly gaming (which was what BD was supposed to be good at....) but a fair number of others as well. Mostly real world. Has nothing to do with Intel, and more to do with BDs long as poop pipelines.Edited by pursuinginsanity - 3/20/12 at 1:57am
