Unoverclocked, vanilla card beating the unoverclocked, vanilla GTX and I'll happily amend my position on this one.

Good luck.
Youre definitely not a fanboy . I doubt anyone here is saying that ati is beating nvidia perfomance wise and neither is the article. Its that ati's cards are kicking the **** out of nvidias 200 series in terms of price to performance. The article is stating that because the 4870 is so close to the 280 in performance for half the price, nvidia has to lower the price for any non super geek to buy their card. If you really had no bias, you wouldnt have posted what you did because you obviously comprehended the article with a bias.

But what if tri sli beats 2 4870x2? Most of you bring up the argument of value when comparing high end cards but really most of us who can ACTUALLY afford high end cards can really careless about price, we just want the best performance.
Exactly.



Also, AMD don't make high end cards? The HD4870 is a high end card. It's toe to toe with Nvidias high end card. It has high performance yields. That makes it a high end card.


EDIT:
Hahaha, price to performance. Wrong. Performance to performance. I like facts and the facts are in, the 280GTX is the best card on the bloody market. Albeit overpriced, albeit being undercut by an inferior product, but it's still the best card on the market right now. the HD4870X2 is simply two cards glued together. 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. AMD fan-people are ranting and raving about such things and whenever someone mentions the actual performance you are greeted with "oh it's bang for buck on the HD" or "price to performance" well that's jsut a horrible way of backing out of a legit debate; which performs better.

if the 4870x2 is the monster we all seem to believe it is, and it is priced relatively low to the geforce cards, nvidia is going to get "bent over a barrel and pulverized by ati's thrusting manhood"...(southpark).

go ATI!!!!!!!! yeah!!!1111

so without a doubt the 4870x2 is gonna beat the gtx28 but by how much we are not sure. Maybe nvidia will come out with better drivers by then maybe not, maybe the tweak the 4870x2 even more and beat it by a good amount so much not even tri sli can beat.

Was getting tired of the BSODs
Same gos for my 3870 over 7900GT. (Which by the way i couldn't figure out how even then the 7900GT was so old and still having driver issues to be hammered out.)

What IF the same thing happens like the 9800 gx2 and quad sli just blows, and so does 2-4870x2s? then tri sli gtx 280s will still be king. None of us know yet though none of us have even seen a 4870x2 in action.

Once you have Tri-SLI 280GTX's there's no real point in anything else. That set-up would run Crysis at 1920x1080p and I can't see why anyone would want anything else. The next would be 2560x1600, yeah, but we're years away form having affordable screens like that.

You are buying 3 GTX280 and you are worried about the monitor being affordable? Buddy trust me if you bought 3 of those behemoths you won't give a care in the world how much that monitor costed you.
