Is that about what a single GTX280 gets ?

That's about what a single 280 gets with no AA at that resolution.

There's nothing wrong with 35fps in Crysis.

It is when the GPU cost you a cool $650

When I decided that 25fps looked good in Crysis on my system it wasn't because "that's all everybody [else] is getting." It was because it actually looked good.

Thanks ^

btw Firingsquad preview is up :

i'm waiting for the xbitlabs review. IMO xbit & FS are ones of the most decent review sites when it comes to new GPUs.

That's still unplayable. With an average of 32FPS at the timedemo, the final battle drops to 9-10fps. You need an average of above 40fps for the final battle to remain playable. I succeeded at doing that by dropping the resolution to 1440x900...

I think allot here are forgetting the CRAP ATi drivers....I KNOW - I to this day still have a X2 on my desk....an utterly crap card. It may not be the cards fault but the drivers....All i know is that in a game like EVE Online that i play allot i get HALF the fps as an GTS/512....
I will NEVER spend my money on an ATI card again before i see tests in not "common" games. And thats FINAL!

But sure - the new cards maybe isane - if they are i will try them. Like i did the X2. But right now i'm 98% sure i will be sorry.

Sure this may be a rant, but its from personal experience!

BAHHHHH!

That FiringSquad article is actually quite positive (perhaps more so for the 260 than the 280), except for the bit on page 5 about apparent heat sensitivity. For me, that's a bit of a red flag...

I would rather have a fast single card. Can't be doing with crossfire or sli.

If the HD 4870 turn out to be the fastest single GPU on the planet, I will own it. Otherwise, I am sticking with the GTX 280. By fastest, I don't mean winning 2 out of 18 game tests. I mean winning more than it loses @ 1920x and up with AA active.

Isn't the 4870 just a 4850 with GDDR5 and a higher core clock? Obviously the memory bandwidth is substantially higher but I've heard the 4870 is only 10-20% faster then the 4850. Any truth to this? Sad that all we're seeing is 4850 hype...

Same. And it will probably be cheaper than the 260.
