    Nice thorough testing. I think you should consider adding some GTA4 benchmarks to either this or future testing.

    Thank-you. Perhaps in future I will add GTA4.

    I have switched from Vista 64 to Win 7 64 and I am definitely adding a few new game benchmarks to my benchmarking suite after I am done with my CES articles. The only one that is certain AtM is L4D to replace Lost Coast.

    Oh yeh for your charts you also have the 720 listed for all the AMD processors, when I’m sure you meant to say the 550 and 955. I mean I was able to figure out which is which by the X2, X3, and X4, but others might not.

    You’re right and thank-you for pointing it out. It is somewhat funny that we all missed it, if quite embarrassing to me.

    As soon as I catch up with my other articles on CES and GF-100 Fermi, I will redo those charts. I had a lot of trouble with the site and HTML errors and after they were fixed, this article got really hurried up for publication so as to be published before I left for CES.

    The Phenom II CPUs are always in the same order (as determined by X2, X3, and X4):
    550-X2
    720-X3
    955-X4
