Through most of the benchmark's I've found, the 3870 will beat or loose by a slight. However when anti aliasing is applied at 2xx, it seems that the 3870 will fall short compared to the 8800gt. Strange thing is, on paper the 3870 will match or beat the 8800 gt. however the 8800GT still beats the 3870.Here's the comparison
How does this happen?
Does the driver for each graphic card have to do with the superior performance of the GT?
Does the memory interface have anything to do with AA making the 3870 lag?
Seems like the 8800GT for now is still better
