    I guess its only a matter of time before all those people that railed against Nvidia for insulting Titan owners by releasing the GTX 780 and devaluing their purchase will now do likewise for those poor early (4 weeks ago) adopters of the FX-9590 :rolleyes:

    5GHz Smartphone?? That's even a worse product than the 9590. If one can find proper use for a 1GHz Dual Core phone I'd be surprised.

    I bog my Galaxy S3 down all the time. It's easy to max out a dual core phone.

    Not my fault you missed the point. Oh well. Try connecting the different systems to a watt meter and get back to me.
