I'd like to see the CPU usage on that 6 core cpu. Maybe it will be soon time to think about 6 cores for gaming?

I'll download the demo and see how my pathetic non-mantle gpu and 4 core cpu can handle it!

Well being a mantle demo bench its really CPU intensive because thats where mantle shines. Now i dont know if its normal or its just me but in some cases my gpu downclocks to 600-800 mhz and has a usage of only 30-40%.Guess you'd probably need 2 4960Xs to not be CPU bottlenecked on dx11..lol

im not so sure about this method from amd ...giving free performance results in people not buying their new stock regualary and they bankrupt themselves in the long run....cause say if u got a amd card having extra performance you are not gonna upgrade your rig so often as it is not so necessary causing amd to have a loss of money.....bad move

Funny thing, I just ran the benchamark on my system with DX11 of course, and it doesn't support crossfire at all, the Gpu 2 never goes above 0% usage, while the minimum Fps registered with a single 7970 was 18, makes me think I would be able to go near 40 with 2 still with DX11
