Only slightly more friendly to AMD’s new microarchitecture than PCMark 7, 3DMark 11 leverages one thread per physical core in the graphics tests and one thread per logical CPU in the physics/combined tests.
If 3DMark is recognizing two physical cores per Bulldozer module, that’d help explain the second-place Graphics suite finish. It’d do the same for the Physics test (even if Intel’s Core i7-2600K still takes first place in both).
