Where are you getting me saying they don't make a squat of difference? I never said that. I said they aren't a big enough difference. They are differences Intel can easily counter at this point.
Releasing more cores in a single package can and will help, but Intel can do that as well, so that point is moot too.
If AMD is sticking with the K10 arch, I fear their only hope is that Intel hits a wall with their Core 2 arch, like they did with P4.
Keep in mind, I'm speaking of this purely from a performance perspective. I've not brought price into this, which is where AMD can make up the difference. (which they finally have with the current round of Phenom price cuts)
good point on the price (amd is well known for that anyway).
Intel has already hit a wall as they have fully used the cache and have over spilled to L3 cache (copied amd again). have already used the integrated memory controller (copied amd again). so what next (a wall as most say, especially AMD)
