If people are interested in clock for clock IPC, this is the one.
It shows on a Variety of loads, that it is essentially +/-3% on them when running at the same clock speed.
Except for two areas where Intel pulls ahead. Gaming and Handbrake.
The only two loads I run where multi-core matters much are Gaming and Handbrake. So Intel is currently the better architecture for me.
Of course in actual products it gets more complicated, because Intel is running at much higher clock speeds and AMD is typically giving you more cores for the price.
But that still tends to put Intel ahead on Gaming, and about tied for Handbrake, despite the core deficit.
