Stainless steel is similarly naturally antimicrobial.
No, it's not. Which you'd have known if you'd clicked on the GP's link. From Wikipedia:
Unlike copper alloys, stainless steel (S30400) does not exhibit any degree of bactericidal properties. This material, which is one of the most common touch surface materials in the healthcare industry, allows toxic E. coli O157:H7 to remain viable for weeks.
The GP is also inaccurate in implying that copper alloys are used in all hospitals; this seems to be a relatively recent realization and is only slowly being rolled out.

Interlagos only has 1 floating point unit for every 2 integer cores.
Not really true. It has one 256 bit FP unit which can do AVX instructions, or it can be used as two 128 bit FP units.
There seems to be lots of confusion about the bulldozer architecture. Its real limitations are that it shares the L1 instruction cache, L2 cache, and decoder between (essentially) two cores, and that it has not-so-hot branch prediction (compared to Intel) combined with a longer pipeline resulting in lower IPC compared to Phenom. The FP performance has remained pretty much the same, except it can do FMAC and AVX now.
90% of all people are idiots.
