price per performance. the 7850k beats the 7700k by a small margin, not enough to make a difference. cpu clock speed improved by 0.2 Ghz on average, and they both have the same GPU R7 (on-die). basically you're paying about 20-25 % more for the 10% improvement. This isn't seen as a worthy price. Gaming aspect, maybe 5-10 more FPS, but cache is the same, You're going to pay more money for basically same performance. This is why A10-7700k wins. You can't tell the difference yet you're paying more money.
I agree. WTF are we going by. All scores say 7850K is better yet 7700K wins???
I'm confused... The 7850K is ahead of the 7700K (or at least tied with it) on every factor, and yet the 7700K gets a higher score despite the 7850K being listed as the winner farther down on the page...?
