CUDA low speed

Hi, I've seen a table that shows a 4870x2 doing about 2400 M/s. I have a 5570 and Core2Duo e6600 @ 2,4 GHz, and I'm doing about 450M/s on my GPU, and about 50M/s on my CPU (25/s each core) - i'm running it on a Win 7 32bit. It's very good for me, but my friend has a Core i7 870 - 4 cores and a gtx 460. So I was expecting alot with that PC, but he only got about 850M/s for the GPU and 30M/s for each core = 120M/s for the CPU. He has a Win 7 64bit, so he's using BarsWF CUDA 64bit. Is this speed normal? I know, it's extremly fast, and other programs are way back behing BarsWF, but how can a 4870 make 2400M and a gtx 460 only 850? And how can my CPU make 25M/s (per core) and an i7 only 30M/s (per core)?

Thx

With the Core i7 you might want to try 8 CPU threads since it has hyper threading. 25 * 2.93 / 2.4 = 30.5.

Nvidia cards have a lower clock-core vs ATI but Nvidia cards are more efficient per clock-core.
5570 is 650 MHz * 400 cores = 260,000 Mclock-cores
460 is 1300 MHz * 336 cores = 436,800 Mclock-cores
450 * 436,800 / 260,000 = 756
850 / 756 = 1.1243
So in this case, Nvidia is 12.43% more efficient per clock-core than ATI.
