Metro 2033 is one of the most intensive games in our line-up and you can see that on our Intel platforms we have a GPU limitation as we hit a wall at around the exact same point. On the other hand, we can see that we hit a wall a lot earlier on the AMD platform; we can see exactly the kind of performance we can get out of the three cards in CrossFireX, so we can ultimately see the CPU limitation that's present on the AMD platform.
