Actually here is another good question. Is there a particular title where it feels like the game is running slow?

One thing that would be note worthy is there are no minimum fps numbers shown. The cpu could potentially have a larger impact if you were being cpu limited and that was causing the slowdowns. The only game I can think of where I've seen cpu slowdowns is Far Cry 2. When the fire is on the screen during the benchmark I can see the SLI scaling shrink on the bars to very little while the fps drops. There are other times where I've seen the bars shrink, but usually the fps doesn't drop meaning that I'm already sitting on a frame cap or something else isn't scaling right.

Actually I can think of another time where that happens, if you play an MMO and there is a bloat load of characters on the screen.
