Wow, this opens my eyes to how useless CPU differences are when they are in the same category of tech in regards to gaming

 

you need to do some video encoding/rendering benchmarks, something that this CPU can shine in

I have some multi threaded stuff in there. Bibble 5, Cinebench, WinRar, Looking to add some and take away others. Where you have multi threaded apps you cant touch this one. THere are some games that supposedly handle more than 4 threads now like RE5. If you do real work with the CPU this one does the job quite well.

+1 the only people who are going to be buying this initially are benchmark whores, trustfund babies, people that do intense video/audio encoding, and the odd [email protected] member with money to burn :bah::foldon:
