Xeon E7 and new E5 also I7 extreme-5930K and 5960X. There has to be place for them the 10 rating is reserved for the most powerful

So why is there the FX-8350? It should be dropped to 9 too, it ins't more powerful than an i5. My card also dropped from 6 to 5. :(

No idea, mine also has dropped from 8 to 7. Maybe because of the more cores-so better at work stuff-rendering and etc.

Sry for off-topic but why is 280X so problematic-I got mine replaced 2-3 days ago and it already gives me problems-refusing to boot and tearing also strange things with textures, nothing that serious but it's annoying.
