well, you have yet to prove your point, considering all of your proof has been faulty so far.
I don't care how bad multi-threading efficiency may be, man, if it were so bad that 2 cores could be beat by a mere 260mhz overclock, Intel would have never made a quad-core, and we would still be in the race to 10ghz.
That test isn't using all four cores man and you know it, why can't you just admit it?
I'll give it to you man, overall Intel is the better choice, they have better performing processors and their price-performance ratio is indeed better due to their improved overclocking abilities, but what I don't understand is why you feel the need to beat AMD down farther than it really is.

And thanks for posting comments that are beneficial to the thread man, I know we may be a bit off topic here, but stuff like that really doesn't help... you don't need to exact your "revenge" on me just because we had a disagreement in another thread.
