And I really doubt you're constantly using all 12 cores all the time. So you're still wasting power.
You DO know about speedstep, coolnquiet, etc? Cores sleep if unused, and immediately eat everything up what appears infront in 1 second and go sleep again, yet desktop one core needs 12 seconds, consuming even more wattage in that long period AS WELL as wasting 11 seconds of your life. So no, thats bad argument, cores are usefull if can be loaded and we know opensource CAN load any amount of cores.
Qaridarium, awesome cpu, thanks for pointing me to 6xxx series! Looks MAJOR ROCK even for Desktop use.
