Hmmm, that may depend on the PPD of both. My 1055T gets between 6-8k PPD, while my 7950 does about the same - 6-8K PPD. Now, even if I shut off my GPU, I may gain 20-25% on my CPU, that's up to an additional 2K PPD, but I'd be losing up to 8K PPD, that's a net loss of about 6K PPD...

Anyways, to the OP, which client are you using? Are you using V7? What version of video drivers do you have installed? Do you have 'Client-Type: Advanced' set up in V7?
