Why do you attempt to talk?
You didn't specify in the first place,so no need to be condescending.
Mathematical assumptions don't even include BD's version of HT.

Looks like we have a new performance king. Expect it to be priced like one due to simple economics.
But to be fair, the 980x is also 32nm, so we're expecting them to overclock similarly.
QFT, because bella is pulling number out of his ass. Someone's angry that BD will be faster than their precious $1,500 SB system.Edited by Heavy MG - 4/25/11 at 4:53pm
