I noticed this thing straight up rules. I have always been an intel guy. My last build was i7 2600k and i also had a i52500k and the people benchmarking can say whatever they want I used theese builds in every day real world computing and my 8120 at 4ghz on stock voltage blows out both intel chips I had at 4ghz. Video encoding is great extracting is awesome games run smooth photoshop is snappy. I dualboot windows 7 and 8 now and feel although metro may be ugly the performance gain is awesome and the task manager is beautiful. Like I said benchmarking may show other wise but I have been using my 8120 at 4ghz stock voltage for 3 months now and I can honestly say I am not a intel fanboy anymore. AMD shreds it . For me anyway. And no im not trolling just wanted to post my results after 3 months of use. Im not sure if piledriver is much more a upgrade but I honestly do not see me needing any better of a chip for awhile.
