Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is too easy for these systems, once again demonstrating a CPU bottleneck. It takes the GeForce GTX 460s in SLI up to 2560x1600 before they're finally able to catch up to last quarter's performance numbers. Applying anti-aliasing extends that lead at our highest benchmarked resolution.

Here more than anywhere, the dual-core Intel chip is hurting our overall performance picture.
