This really has been running on but I will say this. Intel has the CPU market figured out for now. AMD has the CPU market figured out for down the road. It really is as simple as that.
(Bulldozer makes a very nice server chip, and for workstations, dual 8-core Valencias at 3.3ghz is just plain sexy and cost effective.)
talking about any sort of comparisons, not everything needs to compare with Intel
PD's will start with a clock speed of around 4Ghz and moving up from there with 8 or maybe 10 cores with better power consumption and less heat. it might not be as efficient as Ivy but a whole lot more cores and better OC potential than BD..... that's something worth an interest in.
