Let alone multi threading and calculations as a whole.
That "last example" is kinda of a joke right? (talking about previously you attacking someone for "cherry picking"...
Your 8320 has 8 cores and it gives less performance than a 2500K with 4.
And why its important that comparison?
Because the 8320 has the potential to push a 19K MIPS. That is 19,000 MILLIONS Instructions Per Second
(if you didn't know what that means). And according to you
, MIPS is the matter number.
The 2500K is almost 16K. Almost. Which means your CPU gives over 18% more IPS performance than a 2500K.
So you claim, that your CPU, should perform better, since after all, it has more MIPS, aka, more IPS.
This means that according to your example
, the 8320 with its 8 core, should blow the 2500K out of the water right? Well guess again. The 2500K performs at stock(!) at a FX 9590. A CPU which gives 75% more IPS, and has 4 extra cores.
Just that blows your claims out of the water. IPS is meaningless in current games, and most likely in future games as well. This is not 1 core 1MHZ imaginary land. This is a 5ghz 8 core CPU being beat down by a 3.3ghz 4 core CPU land.
This is what IPC means. It means that you can get a hell of a lot more done out of less cores, less heat, and less core speed, and less cores. This is why IPC matters, and why IPS is a load of BS.
BTW, an i3 4130 performs as well as your FX8320 at stock in GTA5. Which kinda means you can settle for an i3-6100 which cost the same as the FX you have. You can even OC it to 4.4ghz+ and get the same performance as you CPU OCed. From a freakin 2 core 4 threads CPU running slower clocks, doing a hell of a lot less IPS.
Yes you can get an i7, but you also get a lot more stuff with it, including performance gain.
Anyway, I'm done with you on this thread. You clearly have no understanding, and start giving irrelevant comparisons.
