Really?? You are comparing a Quad core CPU to a Dual core with a third less speed? This isn't a comparison of 2 comprable CPUs, it is an advertisement for Intel. If you want me to take your site seriously then you should do a comparison with a Dual core Intel chip with a comparable internal clock speed. This is a joke...
