Two of the best looking games out there, and pretty easy to find benches of 5870 Crossfire running right with or outperforming 480 SLI.
Now I'm not posting these to say that 5870 Crossfire is stronger, but you need to look at more than one title to get an accurate picture of performance. There are several titles that 5870 Crossfire competes quite well in.
Benchmark just shows they need to improve drivers. We all know the 480 is superior to the 285, and it loses to it the SLI 285', so I am waiting for a few driver releases before I go saying nvidia "lost"
