Now, I replaced the dual core entry with an identically clocked quad-core one, the QX9650, having double the cache as well, while keeping everything else identical. How were the graphics, CPU and overall scores impacted? Was the PhysX card still of any use in that second CPU benchmark? This time, I limited the benchmark scope somewhat, minus the extreme Vantage round - 9800GX2 got more of a showing here, as it was far more stable even in quad-GPU setups, and it kinda made more sense to combine quad-core CPU with quad GPU, it matches doesn't it? After the usual round of hang-ups and freezes - yes Striker II Extreme has its fair share of these despite our update to the freshest BIOS 0703, and some of our readers seem to have the same experiences - here are the results: And, here's how the PhysX stands against doubled raw CPU power: As you can...
