You're still avoiding the point.
The Beefdozer gets slaughtered by i7 at 16X10 gaming as well:
Not everyone runs 1080P gaming with AA either.
So let's recap:
You think the Beefdozer is a fine value because at a setting that mainly tests the GPU by taking the Beefdozer out of the equation it performs about the same as a 2500K. You leave out that a cheaper Phenom II would do the same.
I show people that at single GPU settings that let the CPU be part of the equation, or multiple GPU situations that do the same, the Beefdozer is an inferior solution.
There's no reason for anyone to buy Bulldozers K7. Phenom IIs are cheaper and perform better. i7s are comparably priced and perform a LOT better. I'm not even going to go into the heat and power, or cache issues.
Friends don't let friends buy Beefdozers, and 99% of the independent reviews across the web confirm this. Only AMD apologists are frantically scouring the web looking for ways to obscure what is pretty obvious to the rest of the world.
"The Bulldozer is a big chip and will be a superior paperweight when you're done with it!"
