20% to 50% improvement over i7 975 in multi-threaded applications is not bad at all The power consumption is also impressive, it consumed slightly less power than i7 920 at idle, and slightly lower than i7 975 at full load Of course no one is excepting to see an improvement in gaming. Games at moment don't utilize 6 cores/12 threads. Actually most games still can't use even 4 threads.

For me, Warriors Within was best PoP ever Prince of Persia 2008 was the worse PoP game I ever played

For example, X rays has much higher freq than visible light, but both have same speed.

The 12 core CPU would kill the 980X in any heavily multitasked scenarios (Nearly any server or workstation role) simply because it has more cores. (Read: Double the amount of real cores) Thats would be true if...
