But in reality it IS differences in architecture. See some benchmarks .

Bwaaa haa haa haa.... good one!

I love analogies to explain why stuff works/don't work. LOL

Clock isn't everything. Each processor has sets of instructions. The less clocks per instruction, the more efficient it is per clock.

It is by executing these instructions that the processor is able to do work. In home desktops, generally, it's x86 or x86_64 instructions with the added SSE-SSE4, etc.

Intel's design is able to execute more instructions with the same clock cycles, so therefore, is faster than AMD at the same exact clock.

Plan and simple. Intel is like a 4 cylinder EFI engine with a turbo making 400hp and gets 40mpg(2500k). AMD is a V8 carburated 1950 style engine making 300hp and gets 15mpg(FX FX-8150). They both are prices within each other. You tell me which one is more efficient? In the world of CPU's more doesn't always mean better. A better architecture is what AMD needs. Get away from that "more is better" and get into per core efficiency and price/performance. IMO, They had it right with the Phenom II/Athlon II.

I agree. Performance is what matters, brand does not.

Lol that guy's funny. Maybe he's butthurt because he can't afford an Intel.

That's actually a valid statement. Intel has a lot more market share, they spend more on research and development = superior products and better performance per clock than AMD.

Did the OP change his post or something, because I'm reading a lot of people telling him, "You shouldn't have taken the 'more clocks be better' idea."

I believe this video pretty much answers the OP's question.
