In fairness to AMD, they've more or less admitted they aren't trying for instructions per clock anymore. They're trying to co-opt Atom on the low end and throw more cores at the problem on the high end. That's a workable strategy given that even high-end PC games are now designed to cope with the abysmal instructions per clock on the X360/PS3.

They're pretty much ceding the entire workstation market to Intel though, plus those few crazies who buy PCs specifically to run emulators.
