    is BS

    Have a look at 4790 and 4690 in threading freindly apps - frequencies are almost the same.

    HT was BS in times of P4 not any more.

    I weep for AMD.
    There was a time when I was watching every new architecture launch they did, hoping they'd finally close the gap again. But I've stopped doing that.

    No shitty remarks about intel graphics and processor? Are you losing touch Michael?

    Michael, you asked me last time to provide you with an example of images not resizing properly. This is the case for these results, at least on firefox mobile. This isn't an issue with chrome, nor dolphin (but the latter has always been very liberal with page layout).
    I have the same issue with Firefox Mobile.

    OBS uses x264 on the CPU unless you tell it to use something else, but nothing else is available yet on Linux

    Steam's in-home streaming works fine for me on Linux (oss radeon)--are you using a different program for streaming?

    It goes to show that having the right kind of software + the ability to recompile using a modern compiler can take a chip that many people don't think is very good and really make it shine. The days of huge performance leaps for obsolete single-threaded software are unfortunately over.

    The 6700K with higher clocks and hyperthreading should be quite impressive. Additionally, next year Intel should get out a version that includes the L4 cache and that will definitely help in more data intensive workloads.
    3.9GHz is relatively high and hyperthreading is complete BS

    Ericg ....well, whatever streaming software you're using really should be using the video encoder present in your APU or discrete GPU. For which open source support has been present for a few months now (leaving out Intel's VAAPI which has been available for years).

    in single core FX 8370 vs A10-7870K = pretty much the same
