[vr-zone]GeForce GTX295 Quad SLI vs HD 4870X2 Quad Crossfire - Page 5  

post #41 of 57
They lost the single card crown (4870X2 took it). They won the single GPU crown (the 280 GPU is great, if nothing else). They lost the Bang for Buck crown (was 8800GT, is now 4850).

It can be argued that NVidia has the 'money no object' crown, as Tri-SLI 280s are pretty hard to beat, and are the undisputed winner in Crysis at insane resolutions and settings.

I dont see how the 4870x2 gets a crown anymore from what I can tell from these benchmarks. Even on early drivers it's beating the old king by around 20%. Add to that the fact that its being released at a lower price than the x2 was and still is...

And the GPU crown goes to the gtx285. Budget crown goes to running 2 smaller cards in Sli or Crossfire IMO

These benchmarks are bogus, especially on the ATI side.

I'm only counting released cards (that's why I said 4870X2). Once the GTX 285 and 295 cards are properly released, then sure, things will change.

We all know ATI is doing so well right now with graphics because they are basically selling their cards at a loss, or very close to it in order to gain back marketshare.
Actually, that would be NVIDIA. ATi is doing well and making nice profit off their cards, whereas the GTX200-series cards cost NVIDIA more to make than they sell for...

They are a lot faster then GTX260's, check the specs at least. the GTX295 has the same processor cores as two GTX280's as well as the same filtering units as dual GTX280's. please stop comparing GTX260 SLI to this card .

So yeah.... they DID do alot more then slap two GTX260's in SLI to take back the crown. Stop having a fit that your $1000 4870X2 Xfire setup is finally going to get beat by something... seriously did you think ATi and Nvidia were just going to stop making faster cards?

would you please just read my post first?
i was CLEARLY referring to 3dmark05 at 1024x768 rez and everything stock ... THAT is a CPU bottleneck .. as i said .. i score 21k at that resolution ... they need to run vantage at extreme preset or 3dmark06 at max to REALLY see the HP of the videocards and how good they scale ...

i'm guessing they ran 05 because of the NDA saying no vantage, or 06.

Will all the Nvidia fanboys please stop commenting until actual REVIEWS not PREVIEWS are released.

I have to agree. I'd like to see actual reviews with the 4870 X2 with newer drivers and sideport enabled going up against the GTX 295.
