Real-World Gaming CPU Comparison with BFGTech 8800 GTX SLI - We are back again with a real world CPU gaming shoot out. With NVIDIA's 8800 series GPU supplying a big jump in performance over the last generation of video cards, we decided we need to revisit just what these new CPUs do for you when you are gaming. Is one better?
With todays faster video cards, we certainly saw more differences between our AMD and Intel processors than we did at the launch of the Core 2 Duo, and certainly more differences than we saw in March of last year. Undoubtedly, the Core 2 Duo allowed us a better gaming experience overall. Also we saw some examples where we were again GPU bottlenecked in games even with these massively fast BFGTech 8800 GTX cards.
