Not according to every benchmark I've ever seen, and I looked up half a dozen in the last week specificlaly comparing those two chips. The 6000+ scores signifigantly higher.

Compared to what? The e3200 is pretty new and I don't see any reason why they would be put up against each other in a review. Have you accounted for platform disparities? And where did you get your benchmarks? Anandtech has a cpu comparison system that only compares them on cpu specific benchmarks, and wolfdales easily beat those old amd, not to mention new ones. I see no way a legit review website would compare a discontinued chip from 2006 to a new chip that isn't even competing with it. I call B.S. The anandtech system is only valid because it lets you select chips of your choosing. And please don't cite Tom's, some of their numbers don't make sense.
