GeForce GTX 550 Ti Sonic Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 550 Ti Sonic Edition is a special edition of the upper-middle-class GeForce GTX 550 Ti. See the standard edition's page for more information.
The new features include increase clock frequencies from 900MHz to 1000MHz and 1025MHz to 1100MHz of the core and memory clocks, respectively.
Benchmarks indicate a 8% performance boost when compared to standard GeForce GTX 550 Ti.
Some modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution but the largest part will have to be played with a 720p resolution to be played optimally.
This Graphics Card needs to be paired with a decent Quad Core CPU.

"This Graphics Card needs to be paired with a decent Quad Core CPU."
"Best CPU Match Core i3-2100 3.1GHz". Eh?
I had this card, it runs dx9 games very smoothly on high/ultra settings @1080p, but with dx11 games it just struggles. Metro 2033 was barely playable with medium settings.

Yep i know it's enough and it has hyperthreading. But it's still not a quad core, and i'm pretty sure pip knows that :) Why not change it to a strong dual core? Would be more accurate, imo.
