I'd just like to point out how insanely WRONG you are there... I've not gotten through my whole suite of benchmarks, but I just played some NFS Shift @ 1680x1050 with 4xAA, 16xAF and all game settings on High. There were zero slowdowns for the 21+minute race at Nordschleife (aka Nürburgring). Compared to my 1090T with a 3870X2 running the same settings and race which does have a few stutters (nothing bad, doesn't really effect gameplay). Both the 6550D and 3870X2 were 512MB/GPU (so the X2 is a 1GB card), which if the ASRock A55 Pro3 BIOS allowed for 1GB+ framebuffer, I'd have selected it wink.gif Sure, the Vantage score is 1/2 that of the 1090T+3870X2 rig, but real world results are proving the A8-3850 to be very capable!

And for anyone curious, memory is set at 1866 8-9-8-24 1T with the CPU-NB speed at default (I'm trying to sort out what speed that is, but looks to be only 1500MHz... confused.gif)
