    I don't see where it states that in their charts. Hmm good to know if that is true.

    Well, you talking about another cpu, therefore there is gonna be more heat, and more power...and looking at it, the simple 6000+ did better.

    What you need is two xeon quads ;)

    I'm an amd fanboy and I say no the quad fx isn't competing at all with the intel quad's. not only in price and performance, but mostly in drivers, the quad fx is plagued with non optimised drivers and few applications that support it, whereas the qx only needs a multithreaded app to run all cores.
