AMD more suited for passive cooling than Intel ?

According to Vincent Andre from ARCTIC, the actual AMD die - which is larger than the Intel one - is a big plus when it comes to passive cooling.

This and the fact that AMD uses some kind of solder or liquid metal for its Bristol Ridge APUs (Intel uses a suspicious-looking thermal interface material) and the choice between Intel and AMD has never been so easy.

Update: François Piednoël - principal engineer at Intel for 20 years - disagrees.

Update #2: Vincent's last words.
