Absolute fucking horse shit COPE. You can overclock a 2600K to 4.5GHz with a very minor voltage bump and a $20 air cooler. The 8350 is also overclocked and uses significantly more power than the 2600K for those same 4.5GHz, whilst offering greatly inferior performance. And the other test with 4.8/4.7GHz overclocks is entirely fair, since you sure aren't overclocking an 8350 that far without at least as good of an air cooler either.

And hell, the performance gap is so gigantic that it wouldn't even be closed if you were running them both at stock speed, giving the 8350 a 500MHz clock speed advantage. Piledriver is just shit, and it's amazing that AMD fanboy retards STILL can't acknowledge that, even now that they have Ryzen to shill instead. No wonder everybody hates you retards.

neither am I, I just thought this example was especially interesting since the normal narrative is that 4c/4t is "good enough" for gaming.

not that anon, and dozer was fucking garbage, but to be fair you could run them insanely hot and they didn't care. I ran an FX-6100 at 4.6 on the stock cooler for 7 years. Maybe I won the silicon lottery, I don't know, but you could blast the power consumption and thermals on that thing without ruining its longevity.

look at how delusional amd cheerleaders are, they are literally still and unironically defending bulldozer

i5 9600k > r7 2700(x) AT THE SAME PRICE
i7 9900k/i9 9900k > nonexistent competitor
when comparing price/performance look at the cost for the complete system and you will find that AMD is almost never actually worth it, the only exceptions are the 2200g/2400g which are actually quite a good deal because of the integrated graphics
DO NOT TRUST THEM about mobile ryzen chips either, they are much worse than intels mobile chips because their idle power draw ruins the battery life and they throttle at temperatures like 25C lower than intel which destroys performance and causes fans to spin all the time, not to mention they're still having driver issues over a year after release
