For strictly gaming and gaming only, the FX-57 showed better scores with all the latest Direct-X 9 tests and games than the Intel 670 did. The Intel 670 is by no means a slouch and its scores were only a little lower than AMD's FX-57. Both platforms however had no problems with any of the tests and all the latest games ran on them. The Intel 670 solution is actually cheaper at the moment though to get into than the AMD FX-57, and the AMD scores were not so much ahead it left us breathless, although we were a bit surprised for sure. AMD has the hold in the high-end gaming CPU division that is certain, how much ahead, well just a bit, but whether or not the difference is worth it to you, remains to be seen. Most gamers I know buy lower end CPUs and then overclock them and the thought of buying something in the FX-57 range is unheard of. However if the best is what you want and price is no deterrent, the FX-57 combined with NVIDIA's NF4 chipset is fastest available solution for the PC gamer and cannot be beaten by anyone at this moment. Games are single threaded applications and neither dual-core or multi-threading technology currently offers any benefit for the user. Recording CD and MP3 audio both are equal and no discernable difference can be seen by the users interface experience with the PC.
