Intel 6cores/12threads outperforms AMD 12 real cores !!! WOW !
I'm not surprised, Intel 6 cores has much higher clock speed, and higher IPC
Also, AMD 12 cores die is 692 mm2, thats more than twice die of Xeon 6 cores (248 mm2).

Here is a proof for you
look at the table

If there is a single GPU that performs slightly slower than Dual GPU and cost the same, then I would go with single GPU, because not all games have good compatibility with dual-GPU. Single GPU = less problems
Anyway, GTX 480 is $200...

Did you notice that GTX 285 was running Dirt2 in DX10, while HD5870 was running it on DX11 ?

But performs better
If this is true, then it means that GTX 480 can compete very well against HD5870 in performance per watt

GTS 450 uses GDDR5
So the memory bandwidth of GTS 450 should be close to GTX 285, even though it uses 256bit-bus
