Like I said Xion, Chris doesn't comprehend common sense. If a 9800GTX in SLI is slower than a GTX280 in SLI, it MUST be because of memory, and not other architectural limitations. I mean, ramping the AA doesn't tax fill-rate AT ALL
I used to think that Chris was pretty smart, if not brilliant. But his defensive posturing, his ignoring of facts, and his stubbornness in this thread lead me to another conclusion.
Once the 1GB 4870s come out, someone with the funds, and half a clue, is going to bench the 4870 1GB vs. the 4870 512MB in single and CF configs, and investigate if the memory limit really affects us today. I eagerly await those previews.
