I'm not so sure. It would take quite a few tests and some _real_
numbers to convince me that such a claim was true :-)
Any 64-bit AMD chip will knock the socks off of equivalent Intel

though, for example Adobe Photoshop is still faster on Intel because
the app is tuned for big pipelines / NetBurst.
