    RE: Page 4.

    What I don't understand is how the cheap i7 930 @2.8GHz outperforms the premium i7 980x @ 3.33GHz by 17% on the SiSoft Sandra Memory Bandwidth Performance test. Why did the 980x only come second?

    Of the tests I've read to date, normally the i7 980x comes tops because of the higher default clocks when comparing to the slower 'cost-effective' offering of the 920/930.
