Try a 8 or 12 core AMD or Intel server, where AMD just performs better due the scaling-possibilitys. The older Opteron would always perform better then a equalevent Intel-setup. Why? Because of the HT. It offers way more bandwith then Intel has with their Quad-pumped FSB.
In their latest CPU, Intel uses mostly the same technology. AMD is being more innovative. And AMD should also have a chance in CPU-world. Not just 90% dominated by Intel only. AMD was the one that kicked their asses and quit netburst-technology.
