Doesn't mean anything if AMD can't get their launches right. At least Intel releases their processors when they say they will. With AMD it's a complete wild card. Sometimes you might get a good hard launch and sometimes you'll get a complete mess of a paper launch.

I think that intel will still come out on top, even though I would like for AMD to win. Intel is like a household name, people see commercials, they're in more computers, and not many people will see this and get what it means. AMD is the true winner for us computer savvy people, but to civilians , they will pick Intel everytime.

I am not sure if the whole 45nm will make much of a difference. It might run cooler and save energy, but how much will that affect the performance.

Run cooler and save energy, just mean make it go faster and give it more voltage

So how about for gaming, games use 1 core for dual core, 2 cores for intel quad, and all 4 for AMD quad, correct?

Games will use what they are designed to use, will not matter on what brand of processor.

I wouldn't be surprised if for example with the Q6600, if it were on a 45nm process, for it to be able to reach the same as the higher end dual's, for example 3.8-3.9ghz. May still be slightly high, but who knows.
