Looking at core schematics it has more then 4 pipe lines, They are quite long tho so has quite a impact on clock to clock vs intel.
What it has 4 of is floating point units and 8 integra units.
They went with only 4 float point because software should be using AVX for the float calculations. Only problem is software keeps locking it out on AMD chips since the Intel compiler only allowed AVX on intel CPUs. There is a patch you can apply to programs or you can fake the CPU String to have "genuine intel" in it then you get a nice boost in floating point.
Or if more things start off loading float point to the GPU should give a massive boost.
Lastly you got to remember these are still 32nm chips, While people are comparing them to 22nm.
Any way did a upgrade to my rig.
EK L240 kit
Can now run 1.55V and get same temps as my Antec 920 go on 1.49V
Use the EK paste so dont know if it needs to cure like my AS5 paste but ill see over the next few days. May change out the EK paste for AS5.
