They both seem to hit 4ghz on air pretty easily but if i7 can perform more calculations per second then its not really a competitor in my opinion. If it does match up clock/clock with i7 then this may be my next setup.
i believe the intel chips will always do PI calculations faster..when has it not? so if you're with the faster #'s then i7 would be your route...then again, we all just have to wait for the benchies to come out.
