A lot of people seem to not notice or care that Bulldozer is vastly underutilized in most of these games.
While SB is using half or more of it's resources, BD is using about 1/4th.
If games used more threads to feed the graphics card, we wouldn't be discussing this issue to death.
Some people could argue that if BD had better single-threaded performance, games would run better.
That is true, but it doesn't change the fact that BD is underutilized.
