I could be wrong.. I want to know too..

Also i wish they to do a variety of card specifically a single 5850 ..
There was a site, I think it was Anand, that did CPU scaling on a dual 4890 setup with an i7 920 vs. a PHII 955 and the PHII showed similar results to this. It also had higher min frames per second. I wish I bookmarked that review.

Good review, although no intel dual cores or any amd cpus. I appreciate their efforts, nevertheless.

Let's not forget that the games were tested at maxed out settings at 2500x1600 which would make it very gpu limited. Lowering the resolution to even 1920x1200 might change things up.

Plus the AMD "wins" were by the tiniest margins so they were within the margin of error. Maybe ATI designed their cards to play a bit nicer with AMD's chipsets?

I was thinking along those lines. A broader test would help clear up anything; perhaps go Nvidia. I'm most likely expecting too much from a single review, but I would have liked to see multiple GPUs (both ATI and Nvidia) and multiple CPUs (both AMD and Intel) at multiple resolutions. If AMD can still hold it's own, then good for them.

Might I ask where a Q6600 @ 3.6ghz compares, based on the tested CPU's?
