AMD has released it's new CPU line. The architecture is very different to everything before and is called Bulldozer. All the reviews I have seen so far say that the top of the line chip is with most applications merely on par with a fast Intel i5, but usually the i7 2600k beats it hands down.
Some exceptions exist though and those usually are of the creative app kind.
Unfortunately though I haven't found any review yet that puts it though its paces using professional music production software.
Does anyone know about such a benchmark?
