wow, no offense but u say some serious BS. where in the hell have u ever seen a HD 4870 out perform a GTX 280 in at least 20% of the games out htere. answer never.
don't get me wrong the HD 4870 is a great card.

(Based on the info you're giving us... I would expect the slightest of drops to, say, $450, provided that the X2 is the better card (as expected), and is indeed $499 in the retail channels.
Now we just have to wait for a GTX280GX2 (man.. what a mess that name is)
now how do u thk its even possible for them to make a GTX280GX2 as big as it is and when the chip is about 2.1x of the HD 4870.
GTX 280= 576 mm^2
HD 4870= 260 mm^2
not too mention the power requirements, there wouldn't be enough room on even a 12" PCB with 2 of those chips. even if they did do a die shrink to 55nm the chips would still be larger than any we've ever seen, besides the current 65nm. u just say a lot of things that aren't logical no offense, and it seems u don't research before u post eitherEdited by sugarfresh - 7/23/08 at 4:52pm
