The only other thing that ticks me off about Nvidia is there rebranding. They seems to always have a new card out which all in all is just a rebrand with pretty much little to no performance benefits.

The 9800GTX is still massively expensive in the UK

HD4850 - £135-£145 average

9800GTX - £185 average

I generally have avoided Nvidia cards because of there prices in my mind were just way to high. I think Nvidia do need to drop there prices a little in general. Perhaps im just tight but I hate forking out like 200+ on a card that offers little more performance than perhpas a cheaper ATI card that I can just Overclock lol.

those 8800gt sli scores are really high, i cannot even keep a steady 30 frames in crysis at 1680x1050, so how the hell are they getting 37fps at 1920x1200

looks like I'm going to get another GT for SLI. I was looking for an article that compared a single 4870 to GT SLI, thanks
better performance and less power consumption

ATI HD 4000 series is doing good, but...

Everyone seems to forget that GT200 cards have 1Gb of VRAM (1024 and 896 respectively) + higher memory bandwidth as well as other important architecture differences. For instance, GT200 will be more efficient in texture heavy games, since they have more texture processing power, ATI RV770's better in computing. What i am trying to say, is that even if GT200 don't look as good as it should right now, they will do better in upcoming demanding titles, while ATI seems to design their cards to win in current titles.

Anyhow, it is just another point of view for people to look at this situation from the different angle. In the end we all win from competition.

And then nVidia will do something about it for sure, in the end they have (according to the recent reports) twice the market share of ATI, not to mention they can pump much more money in R&D. So, quite frankly, it's just a matter of time to come up with a proper counter be it price drops or something else (and it won't take 1.5 years it took ATI to produce something decent to compete with G80s).

The HD4870 has close to the same bandwidth as the GTX 280 thanks to its GDDR5, and the 512Mb is only on the reference card, there will be 1Gb versions, and maybe 2Gb versions as well.

I've never really been a fan boy and loved it when nVidia got it perfect with the 8800GT but damn, they just got their asses handed to them on a golden platter by ATI. Go ATI!
