Haha, I know Endeavour!
Well honestly I am not a big fan of AMD either, Scyth. But I think it is rather good that Intel gets some competition on the CPU market.
And comparing the CPU against intels in many workloads except games, it really does compete...
I probably won't buy an AMD computer, since I use Mac's only, but if Lightroom runs better on an AMD system in general (I know, to early to say) perhaps this discovery could help in making Adobe fix the slow UI problems in lightroom. This is only a wishful thinking, but since the old AMD CPU's are slow on everything in Lightroom I am hoping this new line's performance shown in exporting, also affects the UI.
