Now, from what I've seen, in benchmarks that actually count (decode/encode and file compression) the 980x beats the 1100t at WHAT A CPU IS ACTUALLY FULLY USED FOR.
Guru3d review of the 1100t: Here
Although, I use my CPU for other things than gaming (which is why I have a hexacore and 12GBs of RAM), I acknowledge the fact that most or at least a majority of people at OCN, only care about the gaming performance of a CPU, since gaming is the first and foremost use of their PCs.
Though you're absolutely right, I have said this before and I will say it again; a CPU is meant for so much more than simply gaming.Edited by born2bwild - 2/15/11 at 10:43am
