nVidia and ATI FLOPS difference?
So, I've been doing some reading and it seems that the HD 5870 is capable of 2.72 TFLOPS (sp)/544 GFLOPS (dp) but the GTX 480 is capable of only ~1.3 TFLOPS (sp)/162.5 GFLOPS (dp)
How is the HD 5870 slower than the GTX 480 in most benchmarks? What am I missing here?
