why chose one as the winner and than say that the other performs 65% - SIGNIFICANTLY - better??
both these APU's perform identically in performance, when benchmarking both on the same games such as BF3, i noticed maybe 2-3 frame per second differences but remember the 6600k can easily be overclocked to match the performance of the 6800k, either way both APU's are great for entry level gaming, and when put in hybrid crossfire with a graphics card you can max out almost every game you can throw at it, just be sure to have adequate cooling.
