sounds awesome to me. power and efficiency.
wile E: with half again as many cores, a bottleneck is more likely.
Right, but the original post I responded to on the topic was referring to the X4 versions maybe gaining peformance with the higher HT, to which I responded not likely. I figured they were neutered X6's, thus the only reason they have the 2400Mhz HT, not because it actually benefits an X4.
That explanation make sense at all?

Nope, won't compete in a performance aspect. Price to performance ratio, sure, raw performance (which is all that matters to me), not likely.
