On those GPU and CPU performance benches they do.

Does anyone else find it odd that they always test say 10 GPU's but always only one CPU and it is always the $1000 CPU? If it's a test of GPU And CPU, why not test various CPU's? You know a few in the $150-$300 area, Intel and AMD.

Aside from them testing CPUs later, this is how you do an experiment. You can only have one variable (GPU) and you try to isolate it as much as possible (by putting in the best CPU possible to create a higher ceiling.)

If you put in other CPUs you just ruin the data, and if you put in a more mainstream CPU then you'll have more tests where the CPU is the limiting factor rather than the GPU being the limiting factor, mooting the entire test.

edit - oops, read the topic backwards and missed that it claims to be a CPU test, so this is all stuff you know. Sorry.

No worries, the article got me two. Missed the cpu slide.
