Winner "AMD Athlon X4 760K" ... why? CPUboss you have an error?
... According to the official website of AMD Athlon X4 760K, I is unlocked.
isnt 760k Unlocked ??!???
I would like to know this too.
If the 760k was overclocked to the exact same speed as the 6800k, would that equal out the results? I know that there is a result showing an overclock of the 760k to 4.5ghz but that isn't what I'm asking.
