And that my friend is why you cant Compare core for core!
We have different types of Architecture here.
The Way a "core" is used in a OS is what we need to be going by, for that is a real world environment. A OS will split these cores/modules in to Threads.
8Threads VS 8Threads Is actually the best way to compare.
Look at Cinebench...
When AMD wins by having most power to a thread, because (BD,"cores")
are more effecient than Hyper threading. then people shouldnt blame it on What they "think
" a Core is.
ZOMG 8 core vs a 4 core ain't fair...<--- More like--> AMD is making a more efficient CPU at a higher NM. and that my friend means Higher OC head room, and lower temps.. Oh yes dont forget faster per clock speed.
wait till a die shrink and then we will really talk "not fair"
Module as in Modular kina like legos.
you know legos right?
@anyone that compares BD to Phenom II's release.
It was mearly a die shrink and throw in 2 extra cores.
Bulldozer is Entirly a new type of CPU all together.
Expect to see it Do well.
