I love AMD systems, but right now, there is NO discussion Intel is leading ridiculously. The only time I would consider AMD is for a really compact or cheap PC, where better integrated graphics can make sense.
Fusion APUs are great for lots of stuff....but not for enthusiast gaming systems that's for sure
