Default Re: GTX 480: Worst GeForce card ever?

The 480 beats the 5870 out pretty darn easily, and don't put a good HSF on it, and o/c it, because then it smokes the 5870. Don't even let me talk about DX11, cause stock, the 480 smokes the 5870.

Who are these people that come into these forums now days, and type stupid crap? GOTTA be trolls...
Actually the 5800 was outperformed by the 9700Pro, by quite a bit when AA or DX9 were used. It was easily ATi's biggest victory over NVIDIA, which is why ATi fans still bring it up, seven years later.

What they don't mention in doing so is that ATi didn't even design the 9700Pro. ATi purchased a company called "ArtX" that had a good GPU design and then used it for their next two generations of products. I believe the next card ATi designed was the 2900XT.
