Maybe faster memory is needed? And maybe we should be looking at actual settings people use. There could be some bottleneck that is making the results at low res a lot worse.
Here no silver linings, looking at Tech Report review. FX 8150 and 8120 used faster DDR3-1866 9-10-0-27 2T crushed by Core i5 2500/2600 with slower DDR3-1333 8-8-8-20 2T.
