Yes, intel is slightly faster with non-3D applications, but with games and such, AMD dominates. Also, take a look at this:

" the 820 is a phenomenal performer, exceeding even the X2 4800+ in terms of overall performance."

They did not do any game benchmarks. Also, the PD has 2.8GHz cores, where as the 4800+ has 2.4GHz cores. Nothing a little OCing wouldn't fix.

I have seen the 820 at close to 4Ghz on air over at XS.

*In the tests utilising dual core the Pentium D completely crushes the more expensive Athlon64 3800+*

Photoshop tests? wow - Big deal. It did well in photoshop tests. I use a intel 2.8Ghz at work and it kicks photoshops butt... Loads fast, works fast, filters fast.

I don't need a Pentium D for Photoshop.

AMD has a hardtime with photoshop -.- Atleast mine do..... I think they should run some benchmark programs with these chips in the exact same enviroment on stock cooling.... And ones that DO NOT use both cores in a dual core chip because most programs still are not written to use dual core.
