Default Strange CPU Score on 3DMark Vantage

The Core i7 920 CPU is overclocked @3.95GHZ(with turbo) but it scored higher than Core i7 965 Extreme @4GHZ.

My System Specs


Using NVIDIA graphics? If so, you need to disable PhysX support within Vantage. Otherwise the score is totally skewed since PhysX boosts the CPU score a ton.
