Also done testing myself with 3770K @ 4.6GHz vs FX8350 @ 5.0GHz with 1080 Ti and 3770K stomps it in games. Even in the ones where CPU usage was 80% on both CPU. 3770K @4.6GHz is slower 4790K.
Talk about an on-point comment. I guess 5.0 Ghz on an FX8350 just isn't enough to overcome its IPC deficit relative to newer (or was the 3770 contemporary) Intel CPU's? Or was the FX8350 one of those bizarre AMD CPU's that didn't have as many FPU's as cores?
