Ummmm half baked? Pretty sure that AMD's 8 core is as true to the construct as it should be. Is it the behemoth that we think it should've been? No it probably isn't but the software isn't yet caught up to running remotely 6 cores let alone 8. In fact, every reviewer that knocks AMD in reviews makes certain to mention that those chips are more for video rendering and big task projects.
If you're gonna hate on AMD that's your prerogative. But please try to be factual about their products. It's because of them that Intel puts out a reasonably priced CPU, You need AMD, just like Intel does. Without them Intel wouldn't be worried about R&D and you wouldn't be drooling and awaiting this CPU.
