Intel Kentsfield trounces AMD Quad FX
Test scores reveal that Quad FX manages to achieve equal performance to Core 2 Extreme QX6700 in SiSoft Sandra 2007 and PCMark05 and narrowly edged it in memory tests: both L1, L2 and system memory latency are better on QuadFX than on Kentsfield, but that's nothing new.
However, taking a look into media encoding shows that QuadFather just gets crushed by Kentsfield, especially in MPEG-2 8Mbit reproduction. But the worst result for AMD is a look into power consumption and performance per watt. AMD system consumes far more power than Intel, sometimes even double that Kentsfield setup.

AMD had to go very agressive on the pricing, I doubt it's that easy to get 4 90nm cores with 1 MB running 3 GHz and sell it for 1000$.

I still don't want one, overclocking a dual cpu system will prove harder than single CPU systems; and without any useful apps needed more than 1 core to work fluently... there's no point in spending $$$
