I5-750 VS. AMD Phenom II X6 1055

1st: Which of this two are better for gaming ?

2nd: Which of these two are better for using 2 GPU 's ?

3rd: Can both of these use Crossfire and Sli ?

P.S. Can you answer each question individually, and price should not be factored into the answers

Thanks so much,
Ben

  1. This review should give you better picture, i5-750 is better for gaming.
    http://www.techspot.com/review/269-amd-phenom2-x6-1090T-and-1055T/page8.html

    Phenom II x6 1055 is able to crossfire 2 seperate GPU in dual x16, no bottleneck.
    i5-750 is better with crossfire when that's 2xGPU in 1 lane, if crossfire 2 seperate very-high-end GPU thus 2 lane together there will be bottleneck due to dual x8 but not noticeable.
    From my point of view, they started to produce more 2 in 1 GPU due to better scaling, less power consumption, less heat, just 1 lane. A very good example, HD 4870 X2. So crossfire 2 seperate GPU is not a better choice and only option for those who want to try around what is crossfire.
    Anyway, i5-750 can handle this HD 4870x2 well with no bottletneck.

    Yes both can crossfire and sli, this question is more dependence on mobo.

    [1] 750

    [2] If the cards are mainstream, like 5770/gtx 260 or something, then no difference between 750 & 1055. So based on previous, 750 still wins.
    For high end cards, there would be a slight difference. But not enough to tip th scales in the balance on 1055t.

    [3] Yes
  3. One more point, sli usually doesn't run well with AMD systems, due to subpar chipsets.
    No such problem with the 750
