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.
Anyway,the Core i7 990X is SLOWER than a Core i7 2600K in PCMark Vantage.
Looks at this article:
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.
