SPEC does allow you 1:1 comparisons. In this case we're not yet
showing the gains I know we can achieve. I'm mostly trying to stir the
pot to see the level of interest.

Here's NVIDIA's best published result
compared to ours

The specific Intel CPU is less a factor if you're concerned about
that. I could put this card in the exact same system NVIDIA used and
show some decent performance. (That 3.8Ghz boost in fact may help more
than anything)
