Ahh I must have misunderstood it then the last time I looked at it. Was their old architecture before Bulldozer like how I mentioned it? There was a guy in my class this semester that did a presentation on an older Intel chip and that was how he mentioned AMDs approach (using physical cores). I understand why Intel using the hyper threading approach though, roughly 20% performance with only 5% more die being used. These were the numbers on the chips a few years ago.
Right. AMD used single-threaded cores in anything before Bulldozer.. Intel had hyper-threading in the Pentium 4, and reintroduced it in the i7.
