It seems like Intel CPU's aren't always winning across the board

You think their is media bias where Intel has bought out alot of the reviews?

Cherry pick benchmarks?

Intel's compiler has a cripple their code path when it's not an Intel CPU

I wonder how pervasive bias like this is within the software industry?

The bias is understandable when it comes to gaming.

So how big of a sample of games would there need to be benchmarked to get a more complete picture?

20 / 40 / 100?

All of them.
AMD's CPUs are fine for some things, but absolute garbage for others. It's those others that make the difference.

But that's the problem. It's probably not garbage for other things, Intel has just used their money and market dominance to stack the deck. Actually read the last link and look at the absolute bull-crap Intel pulls to maintain their near-monopoly. It's disgusting.

If you have to play dirty to maintain your monopoly, there is something fundamentally wrong IMO.

I have an FX-8350 and it's really not as bad at gaming as people make it out to be. I also don't have mine stock though, it's at 4.8Ghz and it pretty much stomps everything I throw at it.
