As quoted from nvidia forums:

"The extra two cores and two threads really isn't going to make a difference in gaming performance. Clock-for-clock, the 980X is exactly the same as previous Socket 1366 processors and since most games are GPU limited, there isn't really isn't going to be any core scaling. What really will benefit from the extra cores and threads is applications that are properly multi-threaded, such as video encoders.

Just keep in mind that the 980X is an Extreme Edition and will cost quite a lot of money. What you will get for that money is obviously the six HyperThreaded cores, an unlocked multiplier for easier overclocking and a 32nm chip that won't run at the same outrageous temperatures as a 45nm Nehalam and use considerably less power."

So for gaming is it worth getin the i7-980x/i9?
