true, but at least for someone close to a microcenter, the 1090t is 299 as well, and the 875k is consistently faster than the 1090t.

i guess it comes down to performance you need right now, or an upgrade path

for gaming, its fairly irrelevant seeing as my 6 core goes mostly unused. but for major rendering, the 980X is a steamroller. although i cant speak for the thuban, i hear it is quite fast in its own right.
you gotta weigh the options though


for the price of a single 980x, you could have build the ENTIRE 1090t system

or, you could have 3 1090t's with cash left over

"oh, yeah, well, its still not as fast in rendering"

so you move to the 2nd pc, and work on that while the first is rendering, guaranteed to be more productive

really depends on what tasks your doing, you cant just go by benchmarks that test some game utilizing 2 cores, of course 2 of the 875k's cores is going to beat 2 of the 1090t's cores, difference is, in multi-threaded apps, that 1090t has 6 physical cores

The abundance of Intel fanboys who consistently chime in a comment on "intel pwns 1090t" is ridiculous. It doesn't "pwn" it. In fact it's the other way around. As far as price : performance ratio is concerned, AMD "pwns" the 980x. I'm not saying the 980x isn't fast; however, computers only need be so fast before they become time machines The intel fanboys mostly do nothing but talk down the X6 processors, when in reality, they are amazing CPU's.

Now, to clear things up, I use my Leo system for gaming (system in my sig), plus I have 2 other machines. A Q6600 (3ghz) which I use for my home development server (Web Server 2008 R2, cause I'm a web developer), and an i7 920, which dubs as both a HTPC and a rendering box (virtualdub and stuff) for HD video. That being said, calling ME an AMD fanboy would be redundant. I simply call it as I see em, and what I see is a bunch of Intel fanboys who have little to NO experience with the 1090T talking it down.

EDIT: Also, my Leo gaming machine below runs Crysis at very high (1920x1080, max AA, etc), at no less than 40fps at all times. I realize thats mostly video card intensive, but still.
