40% performance only in a graphics card dominated game. I.e. maybe the driver is
better optimized for Intel than for AMD.

My guess is, that the performance advantage in chess engines will be less.

Nevertheless, the new Intel design (or with other words the improved well known
Pentium-M design) is a progress in the right direction.

Bad news is that no Conroe is available now. Let's see what AMD CPUs are
available then. And what all the new stuff will cost.
