CPU Scaling with the GeForce GTX 280
Legion Hardware has tested a range of CPUs with the GeForce GTX 280, to try and determine what kind of processing power is required to power NVIDIA’s flagship graphics card.
The test shows that with high end graphics cards such as GeForce GTX 280, one has to buy a powerful CPU in order to feed sufficiently the GPU with graphics data.
we suggest for those buying high-end graphics cards, such as the GeForce GTX 280, pick up a Core 2 Quad processor while the Core 2 Duo’s are a perfect match for mid-range graphics cards.
