For an accurate comparison they need to be run at stock as the intel chip has a 300mhz advantage over what advantages it already has in this test.
It isn't an advantage. Stock speed doesn't matter. The FX series and Intels chips overclock to roughly the same top end clock speed on consumer cooling, so they should be benchmarked at the same clock. That is a main reason why Bulldozer couldn't compete. They sacrificed IPC for a higher clock and parallel type of architecture, except it doesn't clock higher. If AMD could clock to 6ghz and Intel only to 5, then a comparison at the same clock speed wouldn't make sense.
