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