I'm off to sleep now, but you can google it and learn that Crysis will suffer without 16x2.
The thing is.. Everyone is simply accepting the Tweaktown review as fact and nobody else has tried to prove/disprove them. It is possible that the P45 sample they used was simply not the best performer. Also in the comparison they made no mention of the p45 smoking the x48 is several of the benchmarks @ 1280x1024. While they are quick to point out how awful the P45 performs @ 2500x1600 with full AA and AF. The tests @ 1900x1200 showed the differences was much smaller. Im not saying Tweaktown did a poor comparison.. I would just like to see someone else run the tests.
Crysis will suffer no matter what system you throw at it. If a 9800gx2 can run with the 4870x2 the game must have issues beyond the hardware used to render it.
