Of course it is, everyone knows at this point, about the
Physics boost to the cpu score for vantage, so it will be higher b/c of that.

Anyone notice how the crossfire scaling in crysis has been improved dramatically?
Haswell fun.

for those of us on the slow connections who are unable to see the pics, the 4870 wins, right? by a large margin or not?

thank you.

Nope, you're the only one.

The 4870CF barely won every test. It's neck and neck.

1600x1200 1xAA, 1xAF

4870CF= 21,695
GTX260SLI= 20,082


2560x1600 1xAA, 1xAF

4870CF= 18,116
GTX260SLI= 17,293


2560x1600 4xAA, 16xAF

4870CF= 14,009
GTX260SLI= 13,430


pretty close. I still want to see some OC results. I am really curious to see which brand OC better this round.

Actually source linked here leads to another forum with proper source link there. Now in review (german) itself there's also quite a few of games compared, not only 3DMark. SLI scaling is on par with CF (for all those who consider CF > SLI). In some games GTX 260 / GTX 260 SLI wins, in some 4870 / 4870 CF wins, almost 50/50 here. Now it looks like due to 512 Mb buffer of 4870 even at 1600*1200 it takes bigger hit from AA/AF than GTX 260. If GTX 260 price will go down as intended to 300$ it will be pretty damn good card for the money and i will get 2 of these. ATI might have to lower 4870 price as well now to compete better, tho they are more flexible in this situation than nVidia.

when CF works, in a lot of those tests games see a 100% framerate increase. Pretty amazing. In cases where CF works, the 4870's will either outperform SLI by a large margin, or be even. When it doesn't work, it's only a few frames better than a single 4870.

As i sad it pertty much 50/50 who wins. SLI scaling is something like 90-100% so it is on par with CF. In some games 4870 win without AA/AF and then loose with AA/AF enabled. So they are pretty competitive performance wise and should be competitive price wise after GTX 260 price drop.

Tho it will be interesting to see max OC results on both.

I saw the opposite, the CF losing without AA/AF, once it turned on, it wins over SLI.
