Well, let's just agree that the test is a bit screwed. The only logical explanation I can think of is that it's comparing all cpu's to p4's. So, for example, that would mean that you need a 4.4ghz p4 or similar to run it.

Then again, if this is the case, the test is just plain stupid. Runs fine on weaker cpu's too. I had no problems with a 3.0ghz p4. So overall, that test is just BS. Are we talking about the pc in your sig? If so then it is capable of running crysis.

performance rated is just what it can in theory perform at. like my dual core 2.1ghz in theory has the performance of a 4.2ghz because of the 2 cores.
that test does seem a bit screwed though lol.
