okay I see, so why does intel rate them at 1333 ? Sorry for all the questions Im just curious to how all this works.
They have to design it just right. And they will not push it further because AMD is now far behind in catching them, so Intel does not have to rush to give u fastest CPU now.
The 2500K is easily best gaming CPU out there, so providing just enough bandwidth and speed that it still wins in most benchmarks.
Something like that, it could be, but only Intel knows what they are doing.
