I'm curious to know what makes these type of games so demanding on the cpu. Take as an example the facebook farmville, it takes between 35-45% of my Q9450. I just checked it out with fraps, when maximized I get 15-20 fps! That's with Sli 8800M GTX.... Thing is that when I switch off power, the fps remain the same. In normal games my fps gets halved if I go on battery because the graphics cards down-clock themselves, but not in this case. I want to kick myself for introducing them to my daughter, I thought her 1.5Ghz single core AMD would have coped with simple online flash games but oh boy weren't we for a disappointment! Her cpu was chugging on fan full speed at 100% Prolly she gets 3-5fps I assume, I haven't checked out yet. What makes these flash games so demanding? My laptop can play games at 60 fps full detail but am I right into thinking flash games don't utilize gpu power at all but rely only on cpu?
