[Fixed - Talk about crappy timing for a broken link]

If thats correct then I think we are in a BIG SH**Y COW PO PO KINDA YEAR FOR ATI/AMD!

I'm hopping its true. AMD/ATI needs this to stay on top.

I'm generally an idiot when it comes to this stuff...especially considering other's plethora of knowledge, but that thing will have to be DAMN powerful to beat an nvidia card to that extent in crysis.

Crysis is optimized for nvidia, and compared to other games, ATI cards perform poorly in it. I doubt those are legit.

But then again...http://www.electronista.com/articles...870.test.leak/

So I just don't know. Also, Nivida is bumping up it's 9900 to July I think, so lets see how the 9900 performs against the 4870...

Ego? xD

Yeah, I know it's no good. It's more of a bench to say "my computer is this powerful". I'm getting it for Bioshock 2, Farcry 2, Mass Effect etc

Well I was going to get an 8800GT with a DFI LANPARTY UT 790FX-M2R. But as the board is Xfire anyways and after seeing the Benchmarks for the AMD HD4870 that's what i'll go for.

Come on AMD!

I don't mean to knid of spoil the excitement. But these benches are unofficial and they could be completely fake.
