now you point out that amd need more yes more they do have zram but if wikipedia is right then they don't use it right now.
so yes it is posible to fix both the power consuming and the speed!
amd only need to put ZRAM and the new clock engine together.
(edit) @kano and you always make wrong comparisons if you wana have single threat performance and only a 4 core then compare it to an AMD FX-Series FX-4170, 4x 4.20GHz or a Opteron 6208 but yes i know you always do it in your intel fanboy way. intel-fanboy-way=pick always the wrong amd cpu to make sure amd never win.
(edit) @ kano the new piledriver 4core fx-4270 do have 4,7ghz(base clock without turbo)@125 watt tdp
