It's just another TweakTown review tweaked too make look the NVIDIA card better.

Why do other sites show the cards just about even or each card better only in particular games? That applies when compared without AA used. When higher AA is applied the HD 4870 almost always gets better frame rate and the AA is all about IQ. The ATI 4000 line scaling better with AA is documented on just about every review.

Well other reviews compare the GTX 260 (core 216) to HD 4870 1GB both cards are in about the same price range. TweakTown used the HD 4870 512 MB and forgot to mention it.

For me based on other not tweaked reviews the HD 4870 1GB is still better choice.
