Except that's not true in this case. Bulldozer loses to a Lynnfield processor in wPrime for chrissakes! And chews through more hydro in doing so! If your statement was correct, then there would be a clear market segment for Bulldozer for those who require strong symmetrical multi-processing capabilities - an area that was supposed to be Bulldozer's bread and butter. But, unfortunately, it fails even there in relation to two-year old Intel chips that have half as many physical processing cores. If there was a worst-case scenario for Bulldozer, this is even worse.
