Windows 7, the operating system, spreads out system loads equally(or somewhat equally) over all cores, so yes, I see loads on ALL of my cores, not just two or four. And the 1090T DOES NOT be beat constantly, or at least not by much. Go take a glance at the AnAnd tech bench, will you? The 1100T and the i7 920 are pretty neck and neck, with the 1100t beating it most of the time.
The older gen i7s get SPANKED by the 1090T FYI. Like I said, check the benchmarks.
The i7 920 wins 27 out of 43 benchmarks, for a win rate of about 63%. In this testing, the i7 is clocked stock at 2.66GHz and the 1090T is 3.2 GHz. So we are talking about a 500MHz advantage for the 1090T and it STILL loses a majority of the benches. Please don't call people fanboy when the data YOU ARE POSTING disproves your own point.
You also have no idea what you are talking about with the OS spreading out loads. Sure, maybe it will spread out your browser, game, and media player to 3 separate cores, but you cannot easily spread out a single threaded application like super pi or gaming (for the most part).
