From a pure hardware standpoint this is absolutely true. The QX6700 was released in November as well, so people who were running quad + 8800GTX SLI haven't seen much of an improvement except for maybe drivers and an extra 2GB ram. There were several people on this forum who ran systems with those specs, alot fewer now, ironically many decided to drop the 2nd GTX.

The direction the graphics industry going is starting to really annoy me. It seems like Nvidia and AMD both think that adding more and more gpus (gpus by themselves that are severely lacking in Crysis - even a step back from where they were a year ago) will somehow change the performance problems...
