game feel is more like 15FPS off. and at higher resolutions and AA settings
the lead only grows. not to mention the drivers that will be coming out.


and yes a 4850 crossfire will give similar FPS to the GTX 280 but then your
limited to a X38 or X48 (maybe P45) chipset, you have microstuddering so
again the GTX280 will run smoother and faster you have to deal with crossfire
which IS NOT supported in all games and has some issues in other with
glitches and artifacting, also some review still show crossfire in windows XP
to yield low gains in games like crysis. the powerconsumption should be similar
but the 4850's may be a tad more hunger, also heat goes back into your case
with the 4850 stock cooler so that becomes an issue.


the 4850's also do not have the features of the CUDA platform so you get no
Ageia Physics support and lower support for other programs like video editing
software and such. Crossfire and SLI are just not ideal solutions and when you
can get similar performance from a SINGLE card as well more features.


the way i see it the GTX 280 is being downplayed by the success of the
9800gx2 when the 8800gtx came out it was fantastic because the 7950gx2
was a bad card and drivers were poor
. but Nivida did things allot better
withthe 9800gx2 and now that the GTX 280 ONLY has 100% more
performance than the 8800gtx people are getting down at it?? looks to be a
good card to me. another thing to remember is that most of these sites still
use 3GHz Core 2 Duo's or 3.2GHZ Quads (max) and some still even use
PCI-Express 1.1 mobo's. that's not fast enough and both the CPU and mobo
will bottle neck the GPU and most resolutions. but put a 3.8GHZ or higher
qaud with it and it will FLY
.

nor only i agree with what this man claims,

but also i share the same feeling about it... nice speech!
