These results are in line with my testing. My 4.1GHz CPU was not enough to feed my three 580 3GBs, even in very GPU-limited scenarios.
Tri-SLI apparently loves clock speed more than anything else.

Well seeing that chart is kinda funny when there a 1.2 Ghz clock speed difference between the 2600k and the i7 920 they used, and the best case scenario is a 30% advantage for the 2600k....In other tests is way less than that, being as small as 3% in one of them.


The 2600k in that test is running at 34% faster clock speed than the i7 920 at 3.6 Ghz, and pretty much any i7 920 can make it past 4 Ghz on air , so the performance gap would be smaller.....Relative to your own 980x, it would blow the 2600k away if the game was written to use the last 2 cores...
