I had to force DX10 and render ahead to 0 on the GTX 480 just to get smooth performance. That worked good on the HD5870 also. I didnt even reformat with the HD5870 and its much smoother than the GTX 480. Is it faster? I don't know yet, I'm just looking at perception of game play first since using the GTX 480 thats been the most disappointing thing about it. The GTX 480 might benchmark faster but as of now BF BC2 runs much, much better on the HD5870. I wish the GTX 480 was this smooth since it gets great numbers in game.

I've got some numbers to compare and will do that soon. right now I'm just going through the games the GTX 480 wasn't running smoothly to compare.

Assassin's Creed II is smoother and benchmarked just as fast. Crysis is just as fast.
Why do you keep doing this?

I Googled "Assassin's Creed 2 480 5870" to see what others (besides me) were seeing as far gameplay experiences and the third freaking link has you saying just the opposite of what you said in this post.

- Far Cry 2, my minimum now was my avg with my 5870. GTX 480 min 88 fps, avg 115 fps. HD5870 min 66, avg 86.07 fps. pwned.
- GTA IV - what can I say, its still not 100 FPS and there is no AA. It runs "well"
- BF BC2 - runs amazing. according to fraps avg FPS are up a lot.
- Just Cause 2 Dark Tower is 120 FPS avg now, vs 89 on the HD5870.
- COD MW2 MP was very fast, a lot faster than HD5870 but I have no hard numbers yet
- Assassin's Creed 2 - runs freaking awesome, much smoother than 5870

Remember, my HD5870 was at 1Ghz core, 1.3Ghz, the GTX 480 is stock.
It's pretty hilarious that no one else seems to have the issues you are having with the 480, and no one else has a problem keeping their story straight except you.

BF BC2 - runs amazing.

COD MW2 MP was very fast, a lot faster than HD5870

Assassin's Creed 2 - runs freaking awesome, much smoother than 5870

Assassin's Creed II is smoother and benchmarked just as fast.

The MW2 and BFBC2 stuff has been beaten to death so we'll just talk about AC2 this time. How the hell is AC2 running smoother on the 5870, when in a previous post you claimed that it was much smoother on the 480?

If you are going to keep this 5870 is smoother crusade going you might wanna brush up on your past post history so you don't keep contradicting yourself. Your credibility is in the toilet at this point when it comes to either card.
