Closed Once Upon A Time there was a .... Tags: CPUs GPUs Last response: June 4, 2010 1:04 PM in CPUs Share cognitoo June 4, 2010 2:11:29 AM Hi All, I once saw a post here on Tom's which compared many many CPU's with many many GPU's and showed benchmarks indicating how little the benchmarks were affected by the CPU. In other words, this review indicated how insignificant a GPU's performance/benchmarks were affected by the CPU. That a core 2 quad vs a i7 had little impact on any specific GPU. Anyone remember that review? And can you help me find it? Thanks, Cog Let me re-word: It was actually Not sooooo long ago as gtx 260's and gtx 275's, gtx 295's were benched with core 2 quads, i5 750's, i7 920's and so on. I have been looking for this chart / review for a long time. Does anyone know Any reviews on this topic?

The review was Hotly Debated by a number of members either blessing the review or complaingin that the games chosen were not the correct games to be benchmarked ... because they favored some CPU's attributes over others.
