HAHAHAHAA. If you ever needed a reason not to take cpuBoss seriously, here you go. Sooooo many things wrong here. AMD absolutely crushes the Pentium (as it should), yet the top of the page has the poor lil Pentium ahead by comfortable margin 7.1 to 5.8 Then... inexplicably, at the end of the comparison, cpuBoss states that they choose the AMD Phenom as the winner. Also notice, in the "Reasons to consider [Phenom]" it lists that it has a slight lead in the single-core and cinebench scores, yet chooses the leave out the multi-core and other benches that leave no doubt as to which is superior. jesus christ cpuboss, really??
