~31K versus ~19K
My 2600K decided to commit suicide on Friday. Why? The hell if I know. It was running 4.5 GHz at 1.45 volts which isn't even close to dangerous for a SB CPU...but whatever. I'll be calling Intel tomorrow to set up the RMA since apparently they don't have ANY way to submit an RMA request online.
But yeah - after much pain and suffering - I got my backed up system image to boot on my old AMD mobo/CPU. Inserting drivers into a non-bootable installation of Windows is difficult. I'll leave it at that.
Anyway - the point of this thread is to laugh at just how much of a difference there is between a decent Phenom II quad and a Sandy Bridge quad. I honestly didn't expect to see that much of a difference in FPS.
