That's not a lot of data, but look at the SLi GTX470 on Crysis AMD vs Intel 2500K. That alone proves what I have been saying.

Also, while I didn't test those games for my assertions of lesser scaling (I think I used the FC2 and Just Cause 2 bench) you need to look at the lower benches on AMD in general.

I think I was not as specific as I should have been:

AMD equals lower minimums, lower fps, and sometimes lower scaling due to limiting very high end graphics.
