"While AMD’s Bulldozer has double the physical cores it doesn’t have Hyper Threading so each core can only process one thread at a time."

Isnt this better because then each core isnt being asked to do twice as much as it usually would?

Having physical cores is better than Hyper-Threading.
However these Bulldozers are not that good, I've seen the benchmarks plus the pricing says a lot.

Even though this was removed whether its fake or real
(Personally I think AMD told SiSoftware to remove them)

If these result are the real deal then Bulldozer is a small improvement of Thuban (Phenom II X6)

Intel is really far ahead now, even Nehalem from 2008 is better than Bulldozer never-mind Westmere and Sandy Bridge.
Plus remember Sandy Bridge E and Ivy Bridge will be out within a year at 22nm.

If AMD has a Bulldozer for a series...
Then Intel has 5 different tank series.

BTW I have a AMD Phenom II X6 1055T why because AMD at the time was better on price

Depends.... Hyper threading is good for some software but pretty much all the result I seen for games show it has a negtive impact.

I might get one of these bad boys for my side rig. it can potentially become a beast with my old gpu.

I cant wait to see the next gen of intel cpu's.
