For Prime95 LL tests, Intel silicon really is that much better than AMD.

Rough performance comparison based on my observations:
4 bulldozer cores (Opteron 4280) @ 2.8 GHz =
2 K10 cores (Opteron 6128) @ 2.0 GHz <
1 i5-2500 core @ 3.4 GHz.

Intel's implementation of SIMD (AVX) along with better cache performance (and I believe better memory controllers) really kills AMD for Prime95.
