jason, i am starting to believe you are a better noob than me. those are old reviews using old drivers. compare this to the TT review (note they used X79 system) . . .
7950 oc'ed to 7970 GHz speed
beats the 7970 GHz in the review.
you do know how much physics score the 3960X gets in 3DMark11 at 4.7, right? yah, it clobbers the i7 SB at 4.5GHz.
edit: even HT off . . .
