Default GeForce GTX 280 & GTX 260 Gaming Performance? true?

CJ sent us a performance chart comparing Radeon HD 3870 X2 against the GeForce GTX 280 and GTX 260 on some of the games out there. Although, the benchmarks are done internally by Nvidia but it is probably conclusive to compare GTX 280 and GTX 260 here. The drivers for GeForce GTX 200 cards is the upcoming GeForce Release 177 while the drivers for 3870 X2 is a rather old Catalyst 8.3.

It's been posted in the 4800 thread already. If it comes close (considering it's an Nvidia slide) Nvidia will be getting my money...

It's all measured in terms of the 3870x2... a 2.0 on the scale = twice the fps of the 3870x2?

I meant how the 2.0 was like 5x higher than the 1.0, rather than being twice as high.

It just makes the graph look like PR crap.

Awesome results if true though.

CJ from B3D has this to say today:

Quote:
The X4100 number for the GTX 280 was correct with the drivers at the time. Seems that NV was able to push it to X4800 with the latest drivers.
This is in Futuremark Vantage, so GTX 280 = X4800.

He also says this:

Quote:
But here's what you all wanted to hear.... According to the same source R700 scores about X5500> in Vantage.
So R700 = X5500.

R700 @ X5500 vs GTX 280 @ X4800 = R700 is 15% faster than GTX 280.
