That's an exception, easily explainable due to the large Eyefinity resolution. That phenomena shows up elsewhere, too.
It's evident on the Lost Planet 2 graph that performance doesn't differ, especially when resolution is bumped up and the 8150 has a slight advantage, but everything else tells a different story.
Arma 2 is a very CPU-limited game and the 2500K clearly has the edge. The 2500 pulls over double the framerate in Civ V on the next page. Come on, man. That's a bottleneck, clear as day. The only difference is the CPU.
