Intel Core i7 990X Hexcore 1366
Alien vs Predator
Such is the underlying performance of the Core i7-990X that Alien vs Predator has become GPU limited, with both the stock and overclocked 990X giving identical results. Is there a more impressive ability than that of making a factory overclocked GTX580 become the limiting factor in your rig?
Although there are quite large variances in the maximum frame-rates, the 990X manages to keep the average frame-rate very high indeed. Although the performance of the 2600K cannot be overlooked as it keeps up with the X58s finest.
