Is this the real world? AMD $229 6C/12T at 65W equaling a $600 140W 6850K?I would like to point out something that nobody seems to notice, about the 6C/12T CPU in that benchmarks.
Now lets look at what Eng Sample numbers mean, and focus on TDP package.
The 6C/12T CPU here has TDP indicator as: BB = 65W(!).
Every other CPU Eng sample, especially with ZD is final version that we will see in retail.
The CPU benchmarked does not have XFR. It is not 1600X. It does not cost 259$.
Probably the CPUZ bench is the best of best scenario (Integer?), but wow!
