2. Re: Intel 4960X vs Intel 4770K SLI Performance on Real World Labs. Sep 10, 2013, 09:31 GL1zdA
One of the worst tests I've read ever. They try to say, that more PCIe lanes and more memory bandwidth benefits gaming, but in reality, what really matters are the 2 additional cores.

Since both systems were running at the same speed and using identical storage drives the x79 platform appears to be the factor behind the improved gaming performance. Other factors could be at play here though, such as the additional memory bandwidth, but we can't help but feel that the extra PCIe lanes were part of the equation.

Sure, benchmarks are all about "feelings".

There were previous tests, which prove this and have a much better methodology. One example:
ASRock X79 Extreme11 Review: PCIe 3.0 x16/x16/x16/x16 and LSI 8-Way SAS/SATA.
The difference in gaming performance due different configurations of PCIe lanes between X79, Z77 and various PLX motherboards is negligible, even with 4 graphics cards.
