While for my own selfish reasons I'm happy AMD may have some chance at a 
comeback, but...  I caution everyone to please ignore SPEC* as any 
indicator of performance..  This will be especially true for any 
benchmarks based on AMD's compiler.  Your code will always be the best 
benchmark and I'm happy to assist anyone offlist that needs help getting 
unbiased numbers.
