Thought that AMD had ran out of numbers for their Hex Core flagships? Think again...

Like the review mate, shame really that the AMD offering is still trumped by the 950.

Im still waiting to see bulldozer(more specifically Zambezi/Orochi due to launch next year) and bobcat(ontario the netbook/tablet APU). those are 2 things from AMD im looking forward to. Competition to the i7 9xx series and Atom combo. Im not really interested in the middle of the range Llano as it is still athlonII based

I can understand buying an X6 for rendering and stuff, but from what ive heard 6 cores doesn't improve gaming performance because most games are set up for 4 cores?

im probably misinformed.

Nope you are totally right

For most newer games even an i3 540 will do the job perfectly fine. It's the GPU that counts most in games. Talking applications that really take advantages of a great CPU, well you have a different story there.
