Actually the x3 710 had better average framerates then the 550 in the games tested. Its definitely a personal choice though. They all have advantages. I personally would rather 3 guarantied cores with a chance for 4 then only 2 with a chance for 4. The 620 had the highest average frame rates, but also the lowest average min frame rates (a summary of frame rates is on the last page).

Definitely agree that they need to do the test over again with overclocked results.
