Default 3DMark11 and Hyperthreading = High Physics but Low Graphics Scores

I posted these strange results in an earlier thread from a user which answered a question i myself had raised in this forum. I thought a light needs to be shone here.

Basicly, having a Hyperthread enabled CPU can throw the balance right out with 3DMark11's bench test. Getting very high Physics scores whilst at the same time showing a decline in Graphics performance would show that indeed the i5's do infact perform as good if not better than i7 CPU's in lot of games given that these said games do not take advantage of HT.

HT on
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-3930K Processor,ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. RAMPAGE IV EXTREME score: P23009 3DMarks
ht off
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-3930K Processor,ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. RAMPAGE IV EXTREME score: P20995 3DMarks

So this also raises another question! If Nvidia card support Physics on a hardware level, then why is this still showing a bias towards hyperthreaded enabled processors?
