I run AMD at home because of the core count, I multitask/multi core apps enough that the FX is actually a upgrade over the PII for my needs. I don't think his argument is valid for the low end FX line that he is talking about. APU wise yes, I think the new APU combined with more software running GP GPU will make them more attractive then an i3. Or the very upper end FX line 8150 compared to intel higher end i series the AMD comes out cheaper for performance 30ish% slower at more then 30% difference in cost when taking in two comparable motherboards and cpus for what he calls good enough performance.

I see what he is getting at, but for the audience/price point he is talking about he is wrong. Slow news day for him.
