Notice the FX8350 is only about 1200 points better than the i5-3570k while the i7-3770k is only slightly better than that AMD chip that costs half of what the 3770k does?
Just thought I would point that out...
Funny how even the FX8140 Bulldozer is actually ahead of the i5-3570k there...
Passmark has some interesting results.
Most of the top ones on the list though are Server chips with 6-8+ cores and therefore can really wring some ridiculous numbers out of some benchmarks.
Not to start a flame war but he's also using a PassMark benchmark to decide on a gaming cpu. 2 completely different things.
I can show you that a top fuel dragster is faster than a NASCAR race car in a straight line but which one am I going to use for a race that has turns in it?
AMD processors have their place but typically they are slower when it comes to gaming.
