Actually StealthHawk it appears that those comparisons are once again a P4 with RDRAM not DDR. Don't the P4 DDR systems peforming slightly lower than the P4 RDRAM systems?
And isn't/hasn't making CPU's been a low profit business for the last couple of years? Whether or not they've been building "high end CPU's" the profit margin has always averaged near the same for AMD (actually it's a bit better now, I think). Again, I don't think that's anything to worry about.
