Thank you Patrick.
I consider this a done deal.
4164 it is.
I too consider this moot because all these marathoned games are now running switching power supplies for stability, too. Which isn't stock.
Lots of good technical insight pulled out of woodwork.
I'm going to have Tim record a game on a CPU that hasn't been updated, then record a similar game with an updated CPU. The proof will be in the pudding about CPU performance, then the tech guru's can explain it. I'm all ears. Cool stuff to learn about.
