The following setup was utilized for this article:

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T - Turbo Core Disabled (CPU Cooling noctua nh-d14)
2 X 4GB DDR3 Team Extreme @ 1680 MHZ 9-9-9-24
Asus Crosshair iv formula
3 X Galaxy GTX 570 1.2 GB (Forceware 263.09, SLI Patch 0.9 beta)
150 GB 10,000 RPM Velociraptor
Dell 3008 wfp 30" LCD
Antec 1200 Watt PSU
Windows 7 64 bit
Turbo core was disabled. People dont realize that the tested settings are quite stressful. All tests are at 2560 X 1600. You have :

32XAA in HAWX2
4XAA Enthusiast in Crysis Warhead

and so on...

CPU bottlenecks with singe GPU is way over rated. It only kicks in with multiple GPU. This has been proven multiple times :

Yes. The tesed settings are very demanding. And turbo core is not in the picture. This is the key to the results :

Unlike such scenarios, this article will try to make full use of a powerful TRI SLI setup at resolution and image quality settings where high end GPU offerings are supposed to run ! Hopefully this will give us a more practical picture of the extent of the disadvantage that an AMD Processors puts you at, when you are running a high end gaming set up.

Massively GPU limited benchmark setting unaffected by CPU overclock. So what else is new?

True. But many people dont agree with this statement and bash slower CPUs as being useless for gaming. This is why this article should be an eye opener for many. Not many sites nowadays do analysis of this sort.

North bridge bottleneck
you need at least 2.9ghz for 4.2ghz cores.
also tighter timings will help with that.
core speed isn't everything.

Uncore was only at 2.1 GHz. There might be some gains if the uncore was at 2.4 GHz and higher.

Stop calling BS on the numbers. The BS is this article claiming to be a CPU test but using 2560x1600 which everyone knows is a GPU bottleneck. If they tested real world resolutions then the overclock might have helped. Im sure the same would happen with an i7 or sandybridge.
