& i didnt say otherwise
i didnt ask people to dump their AMD systems nor said the Conore pwns
the X2 in GPU dependent games. actually i hardly see a difference in GPU dpenedent situations.
thats why i stressed in the title CPU benchmark
i hope people who read this thread understand that its simply a good realtime
benchmark to see how your CPU compares to other ones because seriously i had enough testing with synthetic benchamrks & its time for the real thing.
