Don't go 4 cores at this point unless you won't buy any new games from next year onwards.

How are 3.7GHz and 4.2GHz the same clock?


...they're both running at 4.6ghz...learn to read.


Thanks for the advice, but I do know how to read. The link says the I7 7700K runs at 4.2, the other at 3.7Ghz. So my question remains. If I'm missing something, go ahead and tell me.

You cannot be this dumb if you're trying to argue about benchmark, at least know how the software works.

3DMark doesn't list processor overclock speeds, it only lists system info which will have the base clocks.
It's not the end of the world, but we can see it from here.

I didn't know 3D Mark experience was a requirement to be on this board. Thanks for not answering, but instead taking the time to trash post.

Ok, I think I get it.

I guess AMD isn't the only one dumping cores and threads on their CPU's and having them perform sub par single threaded.

AMD released a CPU that had lower single threaded performance than their previous model it was meant to replace? Oh yea, the very first Bulldozer chip right?

If true, it at least makes me feel better about not waiting, and getting a 7700K

I got a 6700K not to deal with the heat problems it get.
