FX Bulldozer/Piledriver sucks, Opteron Bulldozer/Piledriver was better.You just typed a wall of text and numbers which basically said nothing tbh.
Practically no worthwhile gains whatsoever in games, apps, etc from going from 2.4/2.7 GHz to 4.7 GHz.
Buying for overclocking/higher clocks is useless and wasn't worth it.
While Sandy Bridge is the completely opposite with a monstrous gain from 2.4 GHz to 4.4-5 GHz.
Buying for overclocking/higher clocks is useful and was worth it.
Move from Xeon 1260L to i7-2600K is a big deal in scaling. Since, they were priced the same the 2600K was the better deal at launch.
Move from Opteron 3280 to FX-8150 is a big joke in scaling. Since, the Opterons were going to be priced lower, the Opterons were a better deal.
