For those who want examples, benchmark an i7 920 against 3770K C2C and see what im talking about.
You're wrong, clock to clock is the best way to benchmark and show differences in the architecture of two different chips at the same speed. It's all about IPC.
I understand where you are coming from with regards overclocking headroom but that normally forms part of a FULL review also.
Needless to say, my FX firstname.lastname@example.org is miles behind a 2600K@3.6
