What I had responded to in my entire postings on this thread was that it was and is (in my opinion, and I could be wrong) foolish and in error to grant an exclusivity on performance totality either to Intel or AMD.
No more, no less. When someone says AMD rules, well rules means only one thing. A complete and total domination as per a ruler. This is clearly (as I said) not the case. There are events in which Intel dominates. I mentioned two of those events. One being multi-media encoding. The other being a "Snapiness" when moving between alternative tasks and especially so when performing these tasks quickly. Even more so when performing these tasks quickly with other intensive background tasks taking place. I was stating that these indicate (to me at any rate) that Intel has even now abilities that surpass AMD in certain functionality. Just as AMD has abilities that even now surpass Intel in certain functionality.
This was all I was stating. You can post benchmarks and I can post benchmarks with each of the sides showing some wins and losses.
There is no clear holistic CPU ruler. There is NO ONE CPU to rule them all. This is was and shall ever be what I was trying to state and when others were saying that AMD is the best at all tasks I begged to differ.
I still do differ. However, there is no use arguing when it becomes repetitive and I become bored with repetition. You stated that in Dual Core, AMD wins across the board. I disagree. So you are saying that what I say is in error and that you believe the X2 Dual Core AMD to be the One CPU that rules them all. You can read into this post what I think of your words. So we have little to say. Sometimes it is just best for me to steer clear of foolish threads and these "Which one is Best" threads are such posts and those of you who state a clear ruler of all instances.
