they were underclocking the chips for this test?

also they claim 3.6 was best overclock they could get on the pII.

but, i want to know why they underclocked the chips for testing?

for example, they ran the i7 920 @ 2.1 / 2.4 / 2.6 ?

they put the q9650 up to 4.0
the e8600 up to 4.0 (not sure why they didnt do the e8400 the same? they ran that at stock lol)

didnt even run the pII 920 at stock speeds.... just 2 underclock settings

weird tests imo. and how cares about the P I's

The test was to see CPU scaling with the GTX295, thus they set the CPU's to different clock speeds to see the effects on FPS.

why didnt they treat all the chips the same tho?

some they underclocked, some they overclocked, it didnt make any sense to me.

it allmost looked like they were trying to sell the core 2 line.
these were the highest clocks they tested with.

im not for nor against either intel or amd, and i didnt like the way they set up the test for both the i7 920 and the pII 920
niether chip were overclocked.

i dont think you can get the results you want without treating all the canadates the same, or atleast attempting to treat them the same.

they should have done something like this:
25%underclock setting
10% underclock setting
stock
10% overclock
25% overclock
for all the chips they used.

thats just my 2 cents.

and why even test the e8400 if its just one run, a stock run

Lol, i must be tired. I read that title thinking the 'pII' meant it was a pentium 2 - like some article comparing hardware today to 10 years ago or something... yes, slightly retarded.

anytime you see pII now it should default to phenom II.
