These game benchmarks you posted are all at ridiculously low resolutions. Do YOU play games @ 1024x768???? When tested on modern games at high resolution FX kicks butt. You can go play all the Age of Empires @ 1024x768 at one million fps you want, but for those that are looking for the best possible modern gaming experience there is a new sheriff in town. Get used to it.

Did you actually look at the benchmarks?

There was one benchmark at 1024x768, the rest in which the resolution was specified were at 1680x1050 and up.

Jagged_Steel fails to grasp the reason behind why reviewers bench games at lower resolutions when they're testing a CPU instead of a video card. The work that a CPU does in-game is completely different from that of the GPU and the resolution you game at is not going to effect how well the CPU performs. The reason why Bulldozer seems to do better at high resolution gaming is because the higher the resolution the more fps bound you are to the GPU and after a while even the slowest processor can keep up with the much faster processors all because the GPU is creating a fps ceiling.
