AMD phenom II vs. intel core i7
Hello out there. I have been hearing more and more often that the new phenom IIs are closely comparable to the i7. I usually use AMD and generally trust them t be better than intel, but lately, they haven't been doing so well. I have been told many times over from the intel fanboys that the phenom II isn't even close to the i7, and is still below the core 2 quad. I highly doubt this, as the phenom II has very good reviews, and I have used the core 2 quad and wasn't really impressed. At first, this was the case because the benchmarks for it were botched, as they were done on AM2 boards with DDR2, not DDR3. SO, what I really want to know is how the 2 stack up against each other.
