These are all non synthetic benchmarks and are real world applications being multitasked....

This first one is running Mcafee Viruscan and Dr Divx at the same time...

These are real world applications being multitasked as well....

How can you toss out these figures and state that Intel is better at multitasking? I just don't see it.

Do you know the difference between multi-tasking and task-switching? When Intel is doing two events and switching between other at the same time it is snappier. These "Canned" benchmarks do not show this and never can as they do not perform in the real world.

Thank you for your amazing insight. Truly you have a command of English vernacular and a taste of logical proof.

lots of practical every day use on both chips. Real world app performance. AMD rules. I guess you could come to work with me and see for your self because im not going to draw a graph for you.

Intels maybe better at multi-tasking but is this a noticable issue? also if you aint got much money go amd, i picked up the athlon64 3000venice and overclocked it to 2.6 (so far) at near stock volts 24/7, the highest my cpu temps are getting is 41c no matter what i push it to do. When those nice 500quid dual core processors drop in price to make way for the new babys then il pick one up. If you got the money though just go for any new dog, my 2pence

Your statement claimed that Intel was better at multitasking, not switch tasking. You commented that on your 2 machines, your wife likes switching tasks better on the Intel, not that you believed that is the only place Intel holds an edge. Also, when comparing 2 machines, you have to look closely at the entire machine. Did they have equal amounts of ram? Equal hard drives, etc. I can't comment on "switch tasking" on a daily basis because I don't use dual cores on a daily basis. Are you modifying your statement to say that Intel is better at switch tasking only or are you still saying that Intel holds an edge in multitasking as well? If it's the latter, I still don't see it.

Multi-Tasking and Task-Switching. Not Multi-Tasking or Task-Switching. If you have intensive tasks being performed in the background while you switch between tasks in the foreground there is a hesitation on the AMD machines and this has always been there since K7.

And yes, those are synthetic canned benchmarks you show. They are scripted to perform in conjunction. No one is using the computer for real life work while the script performs it's duties. No one states the peformance of real life work whilst the scripted canned benchmark is underway. They are concerned with quantification only. But this is useless for me to try and have you see what I am saying as even possible let alone probable.

You don't see it, refuse to even look at what I am saying as a possibility. You prefer to fall on your Canned Synthetic Benchmarks as "Proof" and this is why this is a useless argument.
