Look, who gives a ****.
The marks will still be the same unless the games are ready to take advantage of the dual-core and are smp aware.
AMD will always rule in gaming.
Intel will always rule in multimedia.
In fact, the dual-cores will actually be slower than current processors in apps that aren't smp aware...there is no need to go dual core unless the apps are there first...so ha! Who cares if Intel releases 'em first if no one can use 'em only to their disadvantage!
I don't know what all the hoop-la is!
