That's ok. It's also more the big corporations that have to pull their heads out of their assess.
But we are not here to talk about that.
I'll argue that the architecture is in fact poorly designed. How else does it take almost 250W to clock 8 cores at 5ghz.
And even then it get's beaten by a 4 core I7. It's a poor power and core design.
This is also one of the reasons AMD price their CPU's as they do. Else they would be completely pushed away by Intel.
Not trying to raise a Intel fanboy flag. it's just fact.
Then again, you get a 8 core CPU for cheap money and it does deliver a better bang for the bug than what Intel offers.
That is why AMD is still in business on the CPU market.
