Kuma is K10 so that means K10 was able to compete with a Wolf Dale. The performance gap between AMD and Intel was closing. That is ................ until i7 was released.

Would love to see AMD's response to i7.

It was only able to compete at stock speeds with the slowest wolfdale and the x2 7750 has a 200mhz clock advantage. If you overclock them both the E5200 wins by a landslide.

I was hoping AMD would close the performance gap but it looks like it will be a while before that happens.
