[citation][nom]TA152H[/nom]I'm a little confused why you'd choose an i7 920 to compare with a different platform[/citation]Same speeds in Turbo mode, which is used during games, the primary focus being gaming performance.[citation][nom]TA152H[/nom]But, if it's like the P55, which it seems to be, there's the added uncertainty of the architecture thrown in.[/citation]That's true, but neither graphics solution provided the performance needed to highlight the mobile processor's on-die PCIe controller's performance advantage.[citation][nom]TA152H[/nom]I'm curious why you wouldn't want to make a comparison with a more similar desktop platform. Was it because you couldn't get an unlocked Lynnfield to get the clock speeds for the processors the same in Turbo mode?[/citation] Exactly. Besides, Tom's Hardware has already seen that clock-for-clock, Lynfield games at least as well as Bloomfield when a single card is used. If nothing else, the comparison favors the mobile solution's lower power consumption.
