Then whats up with the people that are talking about 8x by 8x, not 16x and 16x (and is there a preformance difference between both?), and can you suggest the cheapest sandy bridge mother board that could support full crossfire? And thanks

It is very hard to achieve 5.2 GHZ in a i7 980X and expensive,meanwhile the 990x has to be overclocked higher to attain the same performance as the i7 2600k,wich means that Sandy Bridge is 20% faster. clock per clock.

The only use i ssee for this processor is for companies, that render lots of things and folding.

+1 i agree

Complete and utter BS.

Clock for clock the 980x and 990x destroys SB junk. What benchmarks are you looking at exactly? In CineBench a 4.5Ghz 980x gets 11.50, while a 5.1Ghz 2600k gets 9.86. CineBench is the only benchmark that actually matters IMO. Intel EE processors are not really meant just to give you a small boost in gaming.

Yes, SB is cheaper and performs just fine. However, it is an inferior chip and on an inferior chipset. Stop spreading FUD

Is it just me or am I missing the point of that 11.5 @ 4.5GHz vs 9.86 @ 5.1GHz? Just wondering. Are those in seconds?

Uh, its Hicookie. It's what he does professionally and holds world records. He wouldn't get very far if he was a liar.

lol, I don't know what you are smoking, but it must be good stuff. Clock for Clock, SB has absolutely zero performance advantage for gaming versus the 9xx line. I have had a 2600K, 920 D0 and a 990x. Did you find some random benchmark that no one uses that had SB 20% faster?

Some people are funny!
