Wow was the only example I had some sort of "personal" experience of core usage relating to gpu usage.
I have fraps of BFBC2 on the 1090T vs the i5-2500k. As well as Mafia II with and without physx... I didn't really feel it was necessary flood the thread with my results. But I can assure you in everything I've compared with the i5 to the 1090T made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
I mean I can toss out some vantage/3d mark 11 scores but then I'll get denounced by the "benchmarks" assault.
Wow indicates what you'll see in the majority of games out there, while not ideal... There are a lot more games coded for 2 cores than there are 4.
Please keep in mind this isn't my thoughts on "If you already have an AMD x6", its directed towards AMD x6 vs SB, which would you upgrade to... While I upgraded from an x6 to the i5, I did it for reasons I felt warranted the switch at a time when the switch was cheap for me. Heck I sold my 1090T for about what you can buy it new for now, and that was just a few weeks ago.Edited by BallaTheFeared - 2/4/11 at 4:23pm
