It seems like the average performance increase is 80% compared with the 3870x2 (ie, not even double the performance), certainly nowhere near four times. This is of course assuming that nVidia haven't chosen specific resolutions and quality settings that make the GTX seem better than it really is, which wouldn't surprise me.
Nah youre wrong, the staple is more than 4 times as high. Witch means about 230% faster! U can't know for sure what those 1.0 and 2.0 numbers really are. Because if it was 2.0 times faster than its the double, and that doesn't correspond to the bar. I.e 2.0 x the speed = double the height of the bar, witch isn't the case here. Logical thinking wise.
