True, however at the same time, many new games are starting to be able to utilize more cores (BF1, as an example), and you have rather minimal returns once you start overclocking past ~4GHz.
True, for a few new ones, though far from all new ones and the majority still does better with few fast cores. Not sure I get where minimal returns comes from as I never heard about diminishing returns in frequency. My main concern is to end up spending a good bit more money, and actually cripple performance in most games, while boost only 1-2 fps in the very few that does support more cores. That would be a quite bad move altogether. I hope to see more benches which compare the two sockets as they are.
Oh, and I plan on using SLI, which is why I look closely into the matter to find the right pick for my use :)
Fair enough. Guess it depends on your use case.
