    I am guessing better binning, may be better chip that OCs more.

    I think they are very similar. I have had two 1090Ts and they seem to overclock just as well.

    I was considering buying one of these when I realized for the last week two of my cores were turned off and I couldn't tell the difference until I looked in my bios. It just goes to show you that for most people AMD or Intel are overkill. Heck a dual core at 4.0ghz can handle just about anything.
