    How is the i7 better than the AMD Quad Core Phenom II X4 965

    Im not saying that the amd is better because i know its not its just the AMD Quad Core Phenom II X4 965 is clocked at 3.4Ghz and most of the i7 are around 2.80 -3.30 Nooby question dont really know that much about most of the chips

    but...most i7 are SUPPOSED to be lower...they don't need to be fast...they are better as is.

    the purpose of i7 is they run better without being that fast...that's WHY most i7 have lower GHz

    Im going to call you out on this one...mainly because I cannot find the evidence to support one theory or the other in real life testing with real life needs.

    Can you show us how you come to this conclusion?

    Don't take this as hostel at all. I would just like to find some facts on this as i have never really seen hard core proof either way.
