Default AMD X3 720 vs 7750 in FarCry 2 benchmark

I decided to buy a AMD X3 720 and compare it to the 7750 I had installed.

System specs;

CPU's X3 720 BE @ 3Ghz
7750 BE @ 3Ghz

Motherboard: Asus M3N78 VM
RAM: OCZ DDR2 800 four 1GB sticks 4,4,4,11 @ stk speed
Video Card: Nvidia EVGA 8800GTX @ stk
HDD: WD 320GB
PSU: OCZ Gamestream 700Watt
Monitor Hanns-G JC151A 15inch LCD

Since this system is hooked up to a 15inch LCD, I ran the benchmark at 1024 x 768 res. I overclocked both cpu's to 3 Ghz for this test.

Results:

Average scores running default test 3 loops

CPU---- Avg -Max --Min
7750BE 47.33 70.91 34.00
X3 720 53.07 70.83 44.54

It is interesting to see how the Max fps are the same but the Min with the X3 720 is 10 fps higher.

I overclocked the X3 720 to 3.2 Ghz and ran the benchmark, the scores did not increase ... interesting again.

Default

max scores are gpu-limited, minimum WAS cpu-limited. FarCry2 works well with multiple-cores.
