These are ancient prices. I have this processor and it does just fine in games. The CPU Boss site is way outdated and their numbers are totally skewed. None of this seems to reflect actual real world performance.
toooo much money for this perfomance! any octa FX CPU,crush this cpu in all games,on all resolution,on 4K without problem,but this cpu.. for gaming is shit...
Maybe it is only considering stable overclocks, so 4.63 vs 4.67 is statistically indifferent??
What's wrong with the water vs air overclock numbers seem reversed? Unless the water setup had a problem.
