The L3 caches aren't the same, possible it is the reviewer is overly optimistic.

So DX12 isn't an improvement over DX11 as far as quality, but it finally can utilize this insane power that dwells inside our rigs ?

The FX 8's are maturing better at least... an FX 8 at 4ghz + should do nicely on future titles still

Now, if the NDA on the performance of AMD Fx cpus would lift, that would be awesome.

The hardware wasn't simulated. The simulation was about testing the CPUs on theoretical real world conditions. It's like the firestrike demo is a simulation of real games.

Are you saying they used a G3258?

"DirectX 12's potential performance leap is insane"
IT ACTUALLY IS!
"AMD R9 290X As Fast As Titan X in DX12 Enabled 3DMark – 33% Faster Than GTX 980" Source
That is insane!!thinking.gif

Is it ideal to use a 4790K with disabled cores to emulate the 2c Pentium (or a 4c from a 3930K, or 6c from 5960X, or a 13 core from one of my 18c Xeons...)? No.

Does it provide a very good idea of what is to be expected? Yes.

Does the difference in L3 cache between half a 4790K "undercover as" a 2c Pentium and the quantity present on the actual Pentium make it a possible source of performance difference? Yes.

Does that small difference between cache quantity have a dramatic or even truly discussionworthy pperformance impact? No...
