Default Re: Will Radeon HD 4870 turn up the heat on the GTX 280?

I've heard that the $299 version of the HD 4870 will only have 512MB of memory, even if it is GDDR5. If that's so, it won't be able to do as well in high resolutions with AA and AF. Sometimes biased reviews will cherry pick their benchmarks to make a card look better than it actually is. Also, benchmarks don't tell the whole story. I learned that when I got my GTX 280. If you've experienced this card, you'll know what I mean. It's all about gameplay!
