Here is exactly what you want to see, though. Look at the performance difference for two PCs based on the same price. So, the AMD system is slower in memory benchmarks and L2 / L3 cache ones, but look what happens when we start to put some VGA orientated graphics into the mix. The aggressive pricing on the whole AMD setup means it's a more attractive option for gaming.
