I'm afraid you're the one not listening here dear sir. I finished reading through the rest of the posts, it's been stated several times that:
a. Whether it has more cores or not does not matter
. Photoshop does not use more than 4 anyways.
b. Intel would actually be more suited to photoshopping than any current
(Bulldozer out soon!) AMD processor (this info is backed up by benchmarks that have also been linked earlier in this thread).
c. Sandy Bridge is superior to the AMD hexa-cores not because of the cores, but because of the architecture. It could have a million cores if you wanted, Sandy Bridge is processing data completely differently than how previous-gen CPUs have been processing data, and this method is more efficient and faster than any AMD processor no matter the amount of cores.
Final and conclusive point of the matter being: Sandy Bridge is better than an AMD hexa-core for photoshopping.
