The bottom line is that Intel fans want everyone to believe that there is a huge performance delta between Intel and AMD. The reality is that is not the case.
I agree. I hate these fanboys. They don't understand either that it actually would NOT be good if Intel was completely owning AMD in every aspect. The end result would simply be ridiculously high prices and performance increases would be very minimal in future gen CPUs because they would not need to develop high performing CPUs anymore. Basically, Intel would be able to do what they want which would not be good.
