On the gaming side of things we can see that in the performance preset under 3DMark 11 we see a bit of a boost in performance as we move up in the MHz. There's nothing too major and it's the same kind of thing we saw when we benched in our original launch article. You can see in the gaming side of things there's not much that has to be said. Like both our Intel platforms there's little difference; the only time we see a little bit of fluctuation is on the FX-8150.
