That's assuming the gpu stayed the same from say 1080p to 1600p, if you went to sli or tri sli, at 1600p the cpu load would be greater than what a single card produces at 1080p.

If somebody can show proof they disabled the 2600K turbo, I'd also agree the results are invalid but I have not seen any proof of this.

http://www.hardwareheaven.com/review...roduction.html

Where?
They used default setting on everything. And the turbo mode is off by default on 1155 mobos.

When a reviewer doesn't give clear information on some very basic but crucial factors such as the cpu speed here, you know something is fishy there.

They were using the same video card. I can understand if one video card was faster than the other but they're the same.

So SB has a high-res bottleneck but BD doesn't?

If I get higher FPS with BD than i7, it doesn't bother me that SB has a GPU bottleneck and AMD doesn't. I'll go with the one that is faster.

OK, I have read all the reviews that you asked me to see.

In the first one, in BF3, the i7 surpasses the FX in avg, but it looses on min and max. Here the brand new i7 2500k match the FX in avg and looses again in max and min. Max and min problems looks like glitches of the game itself (remember that it's beta), but, anyway, It culd be that BD surpasses i7 in this game.

In the second review, I only see that BD surpasses the i7 in 2 games, the rest (that are like 6) are wins for the i7. So i'm afraid i can't see your point.

I stand corrected. Won't buy an ASUS again though.

Apparently there is some magic bottleneck that makes BD better or the same as SB. Although I stopped reading anything he said long ago when I realized he simply tries to antagonize people.

You are being saying the same thing over and over again.

When are you going to actually buy the chip? Or are you?

It's comical you guys think the SB systems are bottlenecking a single 6950...

That must be why I got mins higher than the bulldozer average, even when running fraps with higher graphical settings...

Le SB bottleneck guys:

So is it oversimplifying to say that the more FPS, the higher the dependency on the CPU?
