Now if you throw a bench of Crysis up here on a GTX260 that shows the same advantage it would be a different story since they are close in bandwidth. But no--what we see is that the 4870 outperforms the 260 on that game with high details and AA applied. At 1920x1200 and 2xAA, it outperforms the GTX260:

If frame buffer were all that mattered, this wouldn't be the case.
