That wasn't my point. I'm saying that since the release of the Core 2 Duo, then the Core 2 Quad and now the core i3,i5,i7 line of chips that Intel has been performing solidly for a very comparable price to AMD...Therefore, I haven't used an AMD chip since my Athlon 64 X2 4400+. So, in my case, I would buy the Intel Core i5-750 for $195 everyday of the week over the AMD x6 1090T for $299.
So, the question for me becomes whether this "bulldozer" would actually be $400 or more like $800...and in either case, how does it stack up against Intel chips in the same price range. That's the chip I would go with.
