You do know that Intel's top CPU design team is from the middle east, right? They are the ones that gave us the Core and Core2 microarchitectures. That is about the biggest load of crap I have ever heard spouted off in a news thread. Intel and AMD both use primarily the same instruction sets, and therefore share the same optimizations. Intel can't bribe developers to make their cpus run better, because it would make the AMDs run better too. As for games: Umm, how about SupCom? It's fully Quad supported, and guess which chip wins? You should actually do a little research on cpus and how they work before making nonsensical posts like this.
