Re: GTX 480 (825/1100 MHZ) vs. HD 5870 (975/1300 MHz)
Percentage wise, the core overclock on the 480 is 17.8% and on the 5870 only, 14.7%. Then as said there's the huge difference in memory bandwidth increase.
Still, there may be some sort of better scaling on the 480 with clock speed. Afterall, it is a new architecture while RV870 is the supposed last revision of R600.
