Intel competes very well in all 4 against AMD.
Wait, what? Using newegg prices, the Phenom II x4 competes with the i3...
It's only $10 more
than the Core i3
Just like how the x6 1090T is around the i5s...
, i5 2500 (Non-k version)
, i5 2500k
and finally, Phenom II x6 1090T
AMD provides more cores for the price at the very least, and when comparing i7s, you have to remember that (Apart from SB) a 890FX or 890GX board is a hell of a lot cheaper than a x58 and still a bit cheaper than a P67. (I got mine for AU$133, a damn good price for a decent board)

Intel has a pocket boring machine whereas AMD has a shovel but is waiting on a Bulldozer to arrive, more likely.

Only an AMD fanboy would post this. intel stopped and fixed it. AMD would have disabled 2 sata
ports or used an add-on controller! this is Intel,they fix it period. AMD,however covers it up.
Wow, intel fanboy much?
Firstly, Ivy Bridge is a 22nm shrink of Sandy Bridge, most of that "20%-30%" will probably be due to having more cores (i.e. Something AMD will have with 22nm too) or a stock speed clock increase. (i.e. Useless for 99% of this site)
Secondly, AMD fixed the TLB bug...Remember the Pentium FDIV bug? Intel tried to cover that up, in terms of morals Intel is one of the worst companies period, AMD would have fixed it just like Intel had.Edited by Brutuz - 3/18/11 at 6:09pm
