How long ago was that?  The intel core2 and quad core cpus have
leapfrogged AMDs in recent benchmarks.

Yes that's true for single dual core cpu's. But when you scale up to 8
cores I don't know if I have seen any multitasking benchmarks for that
situation. It's annoying that most benchmarks are for games.
