No The memory controller for the motherboard is the biggest bottleneck on eveyr system made since the 386 both Intel, ********, VIA all used the same basic layout that is the cripple to all performance. But to change it and have programming change to operate appropriately would cost millions. It has already happened for GFX cards thats why they have a few Tflops when combined and compared to a CPU setup. GFX cards are small enough to be redesigned effectively without worry about anything else as they just have an output and input. Try your cheap GFX against expensive graphics in 3DM06. Then do crap CPU against high OC CPU. The score will show you the difference is clear. Gaining 50 in CPU score on 3DM06 gives about 3-400 on total score.
