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.
Actually the 8150 seems to hold its own pretty well against the 2600K in those tests.
They obtained an OC of 5.2GHz. I'm interested to see how it performs versus the 2600K at those speeds.
