I do respect AMD and how they are "trying" to get back into the game, but Intel is just too high on desktop performance...AMD, they should lean twords the laptop/netbook direction and beat them until intel jumps the gun for the Core I7 for mobile. Let Intel keep the desktop PC's boosting thier numbers; and have AMD with their newer 45nm chips and go into the laptop business and regain their population. Have speed for laptops thats all we need to stop this dispute on which CPU is better.

AMD has the low end, they comletely pwn what Intel has up to the X2 7750 v PDC 5200

With Phenom II they have a portion of the midrange, AMD won't grab high end market for a while.

idk I think AMD definantly owns the low to midrange desktop CPU market

this is only good news for people that like to use amd because it is amd.

whats the point?

it's slower compared to intels procs. to me, this is wasted info.

i am not going to abandon intel if the amd chip is slower than my i7...

price:performance I think the AMD's would be better, although I do hate how you're more limited to maximum speed than with an i7

need i say more 670 was 3.8 out of the box, by the end of the decade intel is releasing 32nm chips and those are rumored to be 3.8 ghz on one volt.

I probably should have clarified, but I was talking about current-generation CPUs. P4s never got high enough for the clockspeed to overcome the super long stage pipelines, whereas clockspeed actually translates into meaningful performance for both AMD's and Intel's current architectures.

that what I was thinking, not to mention the LGA 775 P4's have the highest overclocks

I am hoping that the AM3 Phenom II's can overtake the P4 as highest OC

 It was the first quad to hit 6, very promising for a $200 chip that is clocked at 3 instead of 3.2 or 3.8
