You have to find the baseline with the Performance Test 7 App

i wouldnt call an up to 10% performance delta "very small."
the more cpu-intensive a workload is, the more the borked win7 scheduler comes into play.

im installing win8.

A crippled BIOS makes sense. If they take there findings and divide by price, FX should score a lot higher than that.

Ya, it is weighted with something that person would normally do having the higher weighting on the total cpu score

It could be more or less 10% on integer performance

It's only a 10% increase in 1 game,other games you wouldn't notice,we don't even know what GPU they were using.

If only games would work on Linux without having to run a program such as Wine.
