I think that was true during the Pentium 4 "NetBurst"
microarchitecture era. With the new "Core 2" microarchitecture Intel
probably has it better.

I'm personally waiting for Jan/Feb for quad cores, by then Intel will
have come out with 45nm "Penryn" CPUs and AMD will come out with their
65nm Phenom. Will wait for hardware sites to review the
price/performance comparision then I'll buy a new quad core desktop
:-)
