Its like saying my gpus aren't performing well when I run superPI, in fact they don't get any usage at all!!!!
Also every game in the toms report isn't a game the OP plays. Also the settings aren't even that good, and aren't providing the fps anyone with that type of setup would be looking for. So it is kind of pointless isn't it?
Oddly I get higher fps with two 470s, and an i5-2500k, while running fraps, while at a higher res, with higher settings.
86 fps @ 1080p 8xQ MSAA (much higher than 8x MSAA), Ultra settings + Fraps....
Internet review sites are a USEFUL CONTRIBUTION TO BE TAKEN WITH A GRAIN OF SALT on this website.
No, I merely said that higher resolutions and higher settings diminish the bottleneck of any CPU, because the GPU(s) becomes the bottleneck.
F1 2010 is still very CPU dependent, scales well with CPU speed and does better on Intel platforms so of course your 2500K at 4.5+ is doing better than the 2400 at 3.1+turbo regardless of resolution. They aren't comparable. If you ran your 2500K at 3.1+ turbo you would see the same result as them.
I was demonstrating the CPU bottleneck at lower resolutions turns into a GPU bottleneck at higher resolutions in most situations, whether you're running a i7 990x or Athlon II X2 255. Games that are CPU dependent (WoW, Starcraft, F1) obviously benefit from a faster CPU, but only to a point when raising settings.

Which games, and how did you ascertain this, and where can I see the benchmarks?Edited by KittensMewMew - 6/19/11 at 9:28pm
