And it doesn't seem like an engine limitation because older cards in SLI are overtaking the 280 easily in those benchmarks.
I would agree completely. I'm not really sure what is going on in Crysis but it could be a bug that needs to be addressed.
I think part of the problem is everyone can't get passed this game as their primary comparision because it is the "system killer". However, one game cannot paint a picture for every other game on the market. It gives you a general idea (much like 3dmark) but as we've seen with 3dmark it can vary significantly.
If you saw I made a little edit a couple of posts ago, I really do think that once we get a couple of other games like Crysis that come out this year (ie Alan Wake) they might have even bigger gaps between older and newer hardware.
