It would be wise to pay attention to the facts before you anounce some bs like that.
Hope I could help.
First things first, don't go accusing people of spouting BS by pointing out facts. If you don't like the details here, take it up with HardOCP, a known AMD friendly site.
Next, this review is comparing SLI'd GTX 580's. Trying to extrapolate performance using your much weaker 6790 crossfire cards is like comparing apples to oranges. They don't compare. The purpose of this article was to see how BD does when trying to drive serious GPU horsepower. And, according to the article, it doesn't perform as well as a Sandy Bridge CPU (in this case, a 2500k).
And, how many people can get BD to 5 ghz without a serious cooling option? For most, that's unrealistic.
Lastly, are you really complaining about a 200Mhz difference in clock speeds? Those were chosen because that's what most people can get the CPUs up to realistically without exotic cooling options.
I am just going to stop there because I don't want to say anything in anger
