AMD AnandTech takes a look at AMD's new Phenom. "If you were looking for a changing of the guard today it's just not going to happen. Phenom is, clock for clock, slower than Core 2 and the chips aren't yet yielding well enough to boost clock speeds above what Intel is capable of. While AMD just introduced its first 2.2GHz and 2.3GHz quad-core CPUs today, Intel previewed its first 3.2GHz quad-core chips. We were expecting Intel to retain the high end performance crown, but also expected AMD to chip away at the lower end of the quad-core market - today's launch confirms that Intel is still the king of the quad-core market."

By the way, Intel's way of doing business is still immoral, they still bribe stores here in Holland and Germany so that they do not sell a *single* AMD-powered device.

Its immoral - so I guess you'll protest out the front of Coca Cola and many other large companies who pay funds to supermarkets to either go 100% their product or offer all the prime shelf space to their products.
