I foresee several people outright avoiding these for lower core count options.
Yeah this is very dissappointing for me. I want to have the best of both worlds given my 3D needs. i thought this processor could do it. Now its either go down to 8 core or switch to AMD. I would be all for AMD actually if it wasn't for 3D Vision single core bugs.
