Correct. Clock for clock the intel Core 2 Duo stuff is a lot faster.... Compare a 2.4 ish GHz core 2 duo with the AMD X2 6400+ (3.2Ghz) that's roughly a fair comparison. And I wouldn't doubt that the 2.4GHz C2D still comes out on top...
And that's not even getting into power consumption and production of heat
