Thanks for the comparison weld.
I have been saying for a while now, AMD cannot sing the bang for buck song anymore.
Alex I want to understand what the sentiment in that post is accurately:
Are you saying that you feel that AMD's claims that their CPUs were equivalent to Intel's in terms of performance, even when taking into account the lower clock speeds, sat really badly with you?
Do you feel some 'release' to see AMD's latest cpus not being able to outperform the higher clocked P4's (which are also now cheaper, in price to perf. comparison) ?
The 'bang for buck song' is the statement I find emotionally charged - it irked you that this was the, foundless, selling point of these processors?
