If it takes that to beat a single card, then so be it, but the point is and always will be that one single GTX will out perform a single HD4870.
Feel free to correct me here, but doesn't the PCB sandwich that is the 9800GX2 also outperform the GTX 280 quite a bit of the time as well?

OR we could bash them cause they actually allowed Nvidia to get all ****y and price gourge with no competition. Lets hope they keep it this way and give Nvidia some competition. Anyhow thanks ATi!

ATi has released a decent card, big wow. Nvidia is still the fastest. What i will be thankful though is now nvidia might be a bit more reasonable with their prices, because the gouging they were doing prior was nothing short of robbery.

Still, what ATi has done isnt revolutionary, no need to brag about it... this thing is turning into something worse than the Mac - PC debate...

You guys would pass out if you guys found out how much my projector cost's, and I know the jvc rs2 is only 1/3 of the price and very close to the performance of my sim c3x 1080p pj but honestly the jvc just doesnt cut it for what I want.
Perhaps its not about being in a good job, but more about how much you value your quality of lifestyle based on the objects around you. I know that my father is in a well above average job, but doesn't just go around flashing cash everywhere. There is something to be said about researching every last component in your PC and getting what you consider a fantastic deal. Once I graduate and have a good job, I can tell you now, I won't be splashing out on the best of everything, because the part I love about building a system is getting the balance just right between performance and price.

Now earlier you mentioned you don't care about price. And I believe someone else posted saying performance to performance should only be considered. Well I'm afraid 99.9% of the world's population DOES care about the price, and you'd have to be extremely ignorant to not get that.

I pity those so unfulfilled with themselves that they feel the necessity to purchase products to temporarily boost fulfillment. That is all.

God people...
Normally I would agree with you, but the smart consumer pays attention to how the companies handle their business practices and corporate responsibilities whenever possible. Nvidia has been doing poor on the business practice side of things lately, so "red or green" does play a part.

4870x2 does not equal two cards slapped together. 4870x2 is two GPU cores on one PCB with a bridge chip. ATI has proven that they can do this, AND that they can make this work far better than Nvidia's wonderful attempts at dual GPU cores on dual PCB's, truly two cards slapped together(7950GX2, 9800GX2).

The other side of all of this that no one ever considers on the performance side, is that Intel chipsets are much, much, much greater than Nvidia chipsets. So you feel all nice and cuddly with your 780i/790i SLI rigs, I'll take the far more stable Intel chipsets with the tasty crossfire. You keep on eating up memory, dealing with video corruption, RAID file corruption, poor QC, and poor overclocking.

I started with an all green rig (680i + 8800GTX) the 8800GTX was a great card, but the 680i board was a heap that was RMA'd 2 or 3 times, wouldn't hold a decent quad overclock and cost a fortune compared to the P5K Deluxe that I moved on to, that overclocked better.

i've never really got myself dug in too much to the ATI vs. nVidia battle, but im curious how the ATI 3850/3870's compete with nVidia's 8 series
Yes it's sitting in a drawer somewhere.

I also ran a Sapphire 3870 which was significantly faster then the G80 GTS.

My 4850 just spanks both of them.
