HD 5xxx actually cut down power consumption from the HD 4xxx equivalents.

nVIDIA just fails at this.

No idea if these benchies are real or not, but they seem about right to me.

But with Cat. 10.3, the 5870 will be a lot closer to the 480.

In Nvidia's own benches, they showed the 480 only just beating the 5870.

WTF is going on Nvidia?

NV might have been using cat. 10.3 preview?

i really dont see how Nvidia makes there money, you just get more for your cash going ATi, and ATi seems to support more options to...

Now, funnily enough, we, along with many others, use those four games in our testing suite. Some of the improvements are clearly significant, so has AMD/ATI been holding back performance and readying the full force of the Radeon HD 5000-series architecture just before GTX 480/470?

Driver
i hope.

me?

i dont hate it

its just why would you spend so much more for something, when you can spend so much less with ATi, and still get over 30fps in a game and still make it playable? makes no sence, its just wasting money. no one can tell the difference game wise between my 4850s 60fps in HAWX, to a 295s 200fps. i mean really. if someone has that much to spend on a GPU, they have to much money.

lol OK.

But what you want is for the GTX 480 to be as fast as possible. Why? Because the faster it is, the more it will drive ATI's prices down.

Just think of it that way. ATI will always be the price/performance king.

lol you consider 30 fps playable? I consider 30fps a migraine.

you read into things to much, which makes you come off as a dick.

and what i said was 60fps, not 30.

and i didnt say for the 480 to be as fast as possible. i said for the ATi's new drivers to be as fast and efficient as possible. ya know why? because it shows ingenious design of the software. and i admire that. Real companies get the most, out of there product.

~peace homie.

You did say 30 fps but w/e idm.

I agree with this 100%, I was just bringing up another point. The faster the GTX 480 is, the cheaper the HD 5870 is. I really hope that ATI has another performance boost saved up for us after the price drops, but that wouldn't be a wise business decision. The smartest thing to do would be to get it out right when nVIDIA releases their biggest card, which seems to be what they are doing. Though I am sure there will continue to be small increases for a while.
