I have to admit... I am surprised. Single-threaded performance still sucks out the wazoo, but taking into account its given price points AND heavy-threaded workloads... Vishera is actually competitive. Intel still has the fastest parts, but AMD finally has something price-competitive with the midrange Core i5's again. They are still losing heavily out on idle/load power consumption though.
