why is the 6 core amd 309.00 and intel is like a grand???????

More about : core processors

Because Intel are always more expensive.

The 980x does beat it hands down, but unless I was super rich, if I were getting a 6 core, I'd get the AMD.

The 980X is a power house the Phenom II X6 is mainstream.

GHz does not equal performance. It also matters how much the CPU can do per cycle (Hz).
Not to mention additional features. The intel core i7 CPUs excel in AES due to instruction sets or something like that. Hyperthreading is also an addition.

It's like comparing a phenom II 955 to an Athlon II 620. There is no comparison. The Phenom IIx2 vs the Athlon IIx4? There's a proper performance debate. Obviously each core of the phenom II x2 will perform better, but for more threads, the Athlon IIx4 will perform better.
Depending on applications and the tests used, the Phenom II 1090t performs better than all core i7s with 4 cores or somewhere at the bottom alongside the i7 930. Hyperthreading helps the core i7s keep up with the Phenom six core in multi-threading in some applications.

As the price suggests, does the i7 780x perform 3.3 times as fast? Certainly not.

It's Intels extreme edition processor, they always cost around a grand because they're "extreme" lol. Usually you don't get anything extra other than an unlocked multiplier, but this time around you get 2 extra cores with the extreme. They had a $1000 I7, a $1000 C2Q, they even had a $1000 C2D at one point.

Extreme only denotes that it has an unlocked multiplier. It has nothing to do with cores or anything else "extra". It is the same as Black Edition AMD processors. The 1090t is a Black Edition processor.

$300 is not mainstreem. Its not high end, but its a little above mainstream.

Lets not forget that the EE cpu's went all the way back to the P4 days.

Actually $300 is high end.

$1k is enthusiast

$200+ Is normally classified "high end" or "performance" by anyone else slandered

$100 to $200 Is normally mainstream

$100- is typically value.

Allthough thats for the intel side of things.

and these are the number 1 and number 2 proccesors out to date am i correct (its what iv been told)

and how long does it take intel to drop that stupid crazy price tag i mean hell i can build a gaming computer for the price of that one item.

cause if its going to be a wile ill just get the amd. 2nd place is fine by me if im saving a boat load of cash cause if it fails i can still go buy 2 more lol.

Yeah I know extreme doesn't mean it has 2 extra cores, but for the first time it actually does mean that now. Every extreme before gulftown was simply an unlocked multiplier version of something they sold for half the price, in this case gulftown is only extreme right now. So for once, spending $1000 actually gets you something over the $300 chip besides an unlocked multiplier.
