OP I have been trying to tell people this for awhile but it always comes down to them having to figure it out for themselves. People dont want to believe that their beloved AMD chip is holding them back. I love AMD myself but until they get back in the performance game and actually compete with Intel I wont be purchasing any of their desktop solutions anymore.
Not necessarily true. Most applications just don't utilize 6 cores at this point because it's not feasible/necessary. In highly threaded applications the hexacore amds do edge out the intel quads, albeit by an arguably negligible margin. It's really a combination of under-utilization and architecture that causes issues.
