Dont Get me wrong strong cortes matters alot, but having just good IPC is not the whole picture.

You need to learn to analyze this a bit better. I never said IPC was the only picture. I said it's more important than cores. What you've posted completely confirms that.

I can quite clearly see a dual core besting a quad core, and a quad core + six core besting an 8. That kind of data simply is simply far to random to imply cores are a deciding factor.
The architecture and clock speed is by far the most prominent factor in those CPU graphs, not the cores. Hence, my statement that cores don't matter as much as IPC is completely and utterly true.
