Cinebench R11.5 score of 4.60, well below that of previous generation Lynnfield and Nehalem! The single threaded benchmarks (SuperPi) tells the same story.
There is no surprise here .. we see the condition of amd ... even the executive office is a shambles ....
INtel just keeps spending more money and getting farther ahead , amd is trying to keep afloat .
Yes its certainly no surprise that amd has gotten to a place where its just plain stuck in one spot .
The money , brains , and resources are not available to amd the chip distributor.
The management mistakes will now bring the company down the the mat ... yes intel has given it the knockout blow.
In truth its only partly intel , most of the blame is amd itself .
Why isn't AMD addressing the growing mountain of early benchmark results showing the new product to be largely noncompetitive in the target price tiers?
This is HUGE. These new chips are TWO GENERATIONS BEHIND in performance. That is a deficit that cash-strapped, debt-loaded AMD can never hope to overcome. AMD put it's last $50 on red and the wheel came up black.

They are addressing it.
By quitting the SYSmark consortium and saying "benchmarks don't matter."
