    k this is a complete joke… Ur rig consists of a 550be… Wow talk about a bottleneck… Dirt 2 for example… I get 80fps in benchmark with 8xAA at 1920×1080… Horrible… No wonder the 5870 testing actually comes close… I7 vs phenom x2… Like sending a wrinkled up old lady to play in the NFL

    Nonsense. I am not comparing HD 5870 to GTX 480 😛

    And please educate yourself on Dual- vs. Quad-core:

    Phenom II 550 X2 at 3.8 GHz is not a bottleneck for any of the games that I tested – and certainly not for a single GTX 480. Of these benches, only World-in-Conflict really benefits practically from a Quad-core over a Dual-core. These current benches will give you the *relative* performance of the new driver compared to the last set. I have also had a lot of requests to test GTX 480 on the Dragon Platform; not everyone needs to nor wants to run GTX 480 with Core i7.

    You also appear to have no clue about the Phenom II in gaming. When it is highly overclocked, it trades blows in many cases with my Core i7-920 at the same 3.80 GHz. Phenom II is certainly on a par with Intel’s Penryn CPUs.

    Watch for my upcoming series of articles that will compare Phenom II X2 vs. X4 vs Core i7 – all at 2.6 GHz, 3.2 GHz and at 3.8 GHz. The tests are run with GTX 480 and HD 5870 and 5870 CrossFire.

    In the meantime, perhaps these articles will help you:

    The last one uses HD 4870 TriFire:
