I watched the video of AMD breaking the record. Pretty cool. I didn't hear anything about Intel coming back and taking the record back. Thanks.

It is very nice to see AMD on the come back trail with their CPUs, competition is a great thing. Now that their ATI division is firing on all thrusters, they just need to get their CPU division the same. PII is a good sign.
