* Off to read it again myself!

(LOL, ah man - Seeing my system's CPU in "dead-last" (or, near to it each time) is a 'bummer' of sorts, but not in THAT company of them (best ones there is afaik))...


P.S.=> I think the MOST it lost by was 22% on 1 single tests (this was one I noted) & then 17%, & that imo on the latter one? That is NOT much (imo, the gains/disparity has to be over 20%, or your human sense won't note it)... &, in some tests, my CPU was ahead of this FX-62 monster, which surprised me some (multithreaded tests maybe?): apk
