AMD Phenom X4 clock-to-clock faster than Core 2 Quad

FUD Zilla saw proof that AMD's upcoming Phenom X4 processors will be faster than the current Core 2 Quad processors from Intel, but remains sceptical about how it will perform against the upcoming 45nm Penryn chips:
We saw some documents that shows that AMD's Phenom X4 is wining over the K8 X2 dual core architecture in games, next generation games, video encoding and decoding and finally rendering.

The most interesting part was that in all of these applications AMD claims a slight advantage over Intel's Core 2 Quad, but only at the same clock. This claim should be true if you compare the Core 2 Quad at 3GHz versus a 3GHz Phenom X4.
Yesterday we learned that Intel's dual-core Penryn based Wolfdale processors will be about 10% faster than Intel's current Core 2 Duo processors while consuming significant less power too.
