I was thinking the other day that why is it so that the 4-core Core i5 series from Intel out-performs (or atleast performs almost the same as) the 8 and 6-core AMD processors, in current applications?
Is it due to (i) applications are being developed with Intel architecture in mind? OR (ii) current applications / games aren't utilizing 6 or 8 cores, yet? OR is there some other reason?
Thanks in advance!
