We didn’t include out 980X in game results because all of our 980X testing was done with just one GTX580 while all of the other testing was done with them in SLI. Our results between all of our Sandy Bridge CPU’s showed little to no improvement between them for in game performance but with the added CPU performance of the i7-3960X we were finally able to see huge jumps in performance in games that were CPU limited like Metro 2033 and Battlefield Bad Company 2. Our two GTX 580’s running in SLI paired up with the i7-3960X gave us a whopping 153 FPS average in Battlefield Bad Company 2. Finally a reason to upgrade your CPU.
