There's clearly not a lot of performance difference between the 990FX and the 990X chipsets from AMD, and even the lower spec 960 isn't far behind.

What's more interesting than the performance benchmarks, perhaps, is the power usage. Playing around with ASUS' EPU settings can lower this even further.
