LOL I hate intel too. I hear that intel hasn't even finished with this thing. Sorry intel, AMD beat you to it. Just deal with it. Don't promise things that aren't even done yet. It will just piss people off.
So the i7 is going away. Sorry intel fans, but I am not a fan of the i7. It is nice, but it seems to be very overpriced except for the 2.66 model. I think the phenom 2 is a much better choice unless you need extreme CPU power.
Also, I still hear rumors that the 6 core opteron is mostly a test so AMD can debug its promised 16-core CPU that was originally supposed to be released this year, but is probably not going to be released until mid-2010.
Top that, intel...
here is a link to the original testing of it.
It is already listed on AMD's site.
