Um no the 64 killed the Intel Pent 4 chips overclocked and at stock it wasn't close . Then they charged giant amounts for their chips remember the extreme Intel chips .The Am2 6400+ if you read will beat a e6600 e6700 e6750 and will catch a stock e6850 when oced so I don't see your point. Intel was just overclocking chips and acting like it was making a difference and they weren't even close, these however are. We are talking in some cases a 5 percent difference. Lets face it the 6400+ is a 12 percent increase over the 6000+ that not a tiny amount. Intel just release the 1333fsb chips and they only increased performance by 5 percent and I didn't hear anyone say a thing. The AM2 64 x2 chips are very capable cpus they can match up with Core 2 Duo chips very well. Which just goes to show you how well they were designed 3 years ago to be able to even compete with in some cases 1 year to 6 month old chips. If AMD can keep pumping up the mghz keep it up. Look at the difference in gpu speeds in say a 8800 Ultra gtx and a 2900xt you wouldn't apply your theory here would you? Those gpu's don't run at or near the same mghz. Should AMD drop there speeds on the 6000+ to say 2.66 ghz to match up right. Why when the chip will run at 3.0ghz and beyond. Thats a really dumb arguement. If Intel was smart they would put AMD down by producing a e7000 running at 4.0ghz, which their chips can do, when bined right but what they are doing is streching their chips out trying to make them last as long as possible just like AMD is doing now. Atleast AMD doesn't give up on it's customers like Intel used to and without AMD Intel would still be making you change your motherboard everytime a new chip revision came out. Way to go AMD I bet we get a e6900 because of this. To make my point look how AMD/ATI is tweaking the hell out of the 2900 xt the newest driver release upped it's performance in some games by 17 percent. Now that my friends is customer support and hard work. Why do you think they haven't released the AM2+ chips yet ? It's because they promised their customers the new chips would be AM2 compatable and are trying to keep their word. If this were an Intel issue instead of AMD, get ready motherboard makers to start pumping out a new socket because Intel would just move on and screw the consumer. I can only go by the past and thats their track record thoe I will give them credit they are learning from AMD
