Yeah I've seen that before, and its a mystery as to how they got those results. FSX performance is almost entirely CPU dependant, as was FS9, and every other flight sim.

FSX scales perfectly with CPU clock speed, and if you look at Toms VGA chart you will see on an 8800 he gets the same FPS at 1024 w/no AA as he does at 1920 w/AA.

Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem Quad @ 4.0GHz
EVGA GTX 660 SLI @ 1046MHz
OCZ Platinum CL7 6GB
EVGA Intel X58
