You are not reading it wrong. It takes AMD 8 cores to be equal to Intel's 4 - something AMD should be embarrassed of publishing.
This is a supposed leak so we cannot say for sure if it is real.

Anyway,the Core i7 990X is SLOWER than a Core i7 2600K in PCMark Vantage.

Looks at this article:

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/core-i7-990x-extreme-edition-gulftown,review-32126-4.html



A 3.46GHZ six core Core i7 990X is around 20% faster than a 3.2GHZ Core i7 960 in PCMark Vantage. The Core i7 990X is 8% higher clocked than the Core i7 960 meaning that the additional two cores are adding 12% to the score and on top of this the Core i7 2600K is still faster.

PCMark Vantage does not scale well beyond 4 cores.

If this is true than AMD will bring 12 core that will have 6 core running on HT, that's not to bad does it, if they sell 6 shooter now, but again to little to late.

You can't have low power on 8 core and 4GHz that's true also, that escaped 8 core Xeon just have 1.6GHz that's like P4 gen.

Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture is faster at whatever today's processors are meant for (x86 processing).
Bulldozer not out yet, so no proof of real world performance.
This will be quite interesting. ;)

for what is probably a bull projection, it amuses me that so many intel fanboys are on this thread shouting the joys of sandybridge, how do you become so company obssesed, i dont care who makes my bits so long as their good value for money and an 8 core(logical) bulldozer is deffinately compareable to an 8core(again logical) SB 2600k they have the same imaginary amount of cores.

id wager a guess that the initial bulldozers are going to be superceded very quickly ie before 2012 by the later enhanced edditions anyway which being rev 2 will be much better again so il probably be using my q6600 till xmass

and im no fanboy but i will not tollerate intels now yearly if not 6 monthly socket swapping at all rgardless of how good a particular design of chip is (SB does look to be good except for pciex lanes)

Well, Sandy Bridge is an amazing performing platform, it's tough not to give them credit. I do dislike the socket changes they do all the time, but considering Intel keeps beefing up their chips and exceeding exceptions most of time, it's not really much of a hassle from that perspective. I actually moved away from i7/X58 over to Phenom II 1055t/880g because the i7's were to beastly for what i needed.
