Depending on the app, the FX-62 can be "competative" (Though the X6800 most likely will win in all apps), but its closer to the E6700. The E6700 will still beat the FX-62 in most circumstances, but overall its not like AMD got bent over with a 20 - 30% difference in performance overall.
In any case, my point is, yet again, AMD may not be the best out there, but its not horrible, its not getting rocked or else AMD might be actually losing money.
