Can't understand why it can possibly be slower than the 1100T in some tests... it can't be that the per core performance is lower than the 1100...

because some things still run on only 1 core

Exactly, which means the individual core of a 1100T (which by itself is nothing special) is more powerful than one from BD....

Most likely, something to do with a fact that they did not have an updated UEFI/BIOS; so the final/release day numbers (i.e. HWC Review) will be a weee bit higher...then again they main not since the new BD "interger core" is not a true core; where (2) BD threads are like (1.7) "cores", so not true (2) whole cores.

Hence, as BD has been rumored so far to be a multi-threading beast, but a single threaded looser.

I'm obviously missing something here but although BD aren't true cores so to speak (1.7 or whatever per 2 threads), aren't Intel's worse using this standard as it's only 1 core per 2 threads?

Well my $0.02, but Intel's SB for instance has (4) true physical cores plus HT, so at a single thread/single core performance it has an advantage over BD, because it has a "true" (very efficient) core. However, at a multi-threaded scenario it has has a theoretical disadvantage due to the inefficient HT acting something like (1.3) of a core vs BD (1.7) of a core. Feel free to correct me.

Ah, first time I've heard that one... damn not even 8 true cores... :(
