Nah, it's not that bad. i7 scales much better with multi-GPU than the Core 2s do.
They should've OC'd it more, though, without a doubt. I don't understand why they didn't. They did say that they ran one game w/ the chip OC'd to 4.4GHz and didn't see much gain, but that was just one title. Could've been different on the others which is one reason I think Quadfire didn't come out ahead in most of the benches. Takes more CPU power than any of the rest.
