To people that will spend maybe $200-$300 on a new cpu, the benchmarks that these high-end intels get don't mean crap.
More $200 CPUs are likely to be sold than $1,000 CPUs... If you were selling the most bad-ass top of the line CPU for $4,000, how many would you sale?
chances are, only companies and rich people would buy it, and thats not a lot of people.
that overly expensive CPU would not come out on top, for that reason alone.
