Especially in things like SuperPI where an Athlon X2 3800+ gets 45 seconds, and an Intel gets 11 seconds (jseber ) thats less than half the time. That's a freaking amazing speed. Think of if the thing you were timing took a week, or even a year. The Intel would get it done in a year, and with the AMD you'd be waiting another year and a few months. So yes, big difference.


actually the athlon would only be 3 days behind do the math
