I don't know whether thats because 2GB of ram, an high-end storage array, more tolerance for loading screens or a combination of the 3

Honestly I have yet to see a rig do bareable framerates at 1680 and you're talking about 1980 res. :(
Well if you don't mind playing the a game as a slide show LOL
I dunno. These scores don't sound quite right to me. I have an AMD 3200 OC'd to 2.7, from 2.0 stock, 1 gig of slightly OC'd, lowered latency ram, and only *ONE* 7900 GT (overclocked and volt modded to past GTX speeds, 730 mghz core, 1800 memory) and mine runs this BEAUTIFULLY~! I have it maxed settings, 16 X 12 and the framerate NEVER drops below 60 FPS (with the exception of the occasional hiccup from my slow HDD caching).......so maybe the testers aren't testing well? I dunno, but bring this system to it's knees? please! If anything, this system brings the game to it's knees. I'd game even higher res, but my screen only supports 16 X 12 max anyway.

I have a Athlon 64 3500+ running at 2.5 Ghz, mem at 454 Mhz DDR, and an X1900XTX.
I can run the game with every single setting cranked to maximum @ 1280x1024. The only place I notice < 20 fps is when I piss off 20 guards and when I jump off the mountains and the terrian loading before I reach my stony grave below. haha. Oh, and Imperial city runs around 25 fps at these settings.
I tried running it at 1280x720 with all these settings maxed and got about a 10 fps boost everywhere, but I personally like 1280x1024 because at that resultion, the game has very low alaising, which rids the need for Anti Aliasing. And @ 1280x1024 is really does look better than 720 rendering the extra 389,000 Pixels per frame makes a difference.
And the reviewer is right. If you love this game and can't run HDR. Its well worth the money to buy a PS 3.0 ATI X1800 or X1900 or NVidia 7900 to see it.
BTW, I would like to see you X360 guys complete an oblivion gate mission in 57 seconds like I did. haha. PC owns and you n00bs can't admit it. lol.
Mouse + KB = skill
Wireless Controller + Couch + Potato Chips = no reflex, tired fat, go to sleep.
