Yes i agree. AMD is finally doing a top down redesign, so i expect great things. Hence why i have my 990FX board already installed and ready for BD. All i was really stating was where overall performance leaned, it doesn't matter to may people whether you get 100 frames or 90 frames in gaming hence overall values leans towards AMD, but heavy multi-threaded software is where the difference comes in. It just depends what you need really.
