I think we can safely agree now that Intel cpus bellow $300 for gaming = no no.
it's hard to make any conclusion, but that's not the first time I'm seeing "strange results" from GameGPU, in the past it was pretty clear that their test methodology was not great, perhaps it still the case, or maybe they tested under significantly different conditions...
again for the AMD fans, wouldn't be better to just buy the FX 6100 (since power usage is not a great concern anyway...)?
at the same clock it should be as fast as the a10 for gaming, the A10 had some improvements, but it lacks the l3 cache (and comparing the 5800K with the FX 4300 it makes a big difference for gaming http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/675?vs=700), but the 6100 have also 3 modules, cpu clock is low, but it shouldn't be hard to OC it to 4GHz?
only $10 more
