And the 280GTX is still the fastest single chip card out there, there is no disputing that.
I fully agree with you
As about 280 GTX it is the clear winner when comes to performance (with and without AA)
The GTX280 is clearly superior in speed from the 4870 in almost every test i have seen
The people that say 4870 is faster from GTX280 are fanboys
Some examples (with AA)
