Legit Reviews Benchmark Results:  Taking a look at the benchmarks, we can start to see a trend.  In tests where a single core is tested, the cheap Intel G4400 has a slight advantage over the AMD 880K.  However, most applications are quickly becoming multi-core/multi-threaded capable, which is where we start to see the AMD 880K take the lead; for a low cost solution, it is starting to show promise.
