    A Core I7 2600K beats a Core i7 990X in PCMark Vantage:

    This indicates the benchmark does not make very good use of more cores. Hence,the top end Bulldozer CPU is doing a good job if it is matching a Core i7 2600K.

    Edit!!

    Even when you consider the 100MHZ increase in clockspeed and an extra 4 threads the Core i7 2600K is under 10% faster than a Core i5 2500K in PCMark Vantage:

    Yeah sounds promising - although the 2600k is still supposed to be "mid-range", the high end becoming LGA2011. Also it doesn't list other specs for the benchmark - if the same GPU was used or HDD etc.
