Unconfirmed: Radeon HD 4870 Beats GeForce 9800 GX2 By 25 percent

There is still little to no information about AMD's upcoming ATI Radeon HD 4870, but Belgium website, BilgiUstam, managed to get their hands on 3 charts comparing it to Nvidia's GeForce 9800 GX2.

The charts are available in the screens tab, but be warned: we couldn't check their authenticity. We asked several hardware reviewers and hardware centered websites but they all failed to confirm the authenticity of those charts.

The charts indicate that ATI Radeon HD 4870, expected to be released within a month, beats Nvidia's top dog, the 1GB GeForce 9800 GX2, nearly by a 25% margin in 3D Mark 2006 and Crysis.

Alleged test system:
- Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 @ 3.00GHz
- ASUS P5E3 Deluxe
- 2×1GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz 9-9-9-26
- Western Digital 250GB 16MB SATA2 7200RPM
- 1GB GeForce 9800 GX2 - 600/1500/2000mhz
- 512MB ATI HD 4870 - 800/3400mhz

Unconfirmed: Radeon HD 4870 Beats GeForce 9800 GX2 By 25 percent

In a particular piece of music software, there is a counter which counts 1/1000s of a beat. Now, I don't know about other people's eyes, but I can see many many more numbers in one second than 27.6As hairdie said, 25fps and 30 fps are for standard video, and only look ok because each frame contains correct motion blurring. (real-life image exposure motion blurring, not the fake 3D motion blurring)Without motion blurring, 25fps or 30fps would look very choppy.

hmm if the post is correct its not the GX2 vs the X2???Its the single GPU card, and if i base myself on the price range ATI is at the momment...well 44 FPS on good resolution in crysis kicks ass again IF this is true :(So like 600$ card vs a maybe 300$ lunch card....its no contest reallyLoL just so you know the HD3870X2 is 450$If the 9900GX2 cost more and is just a stupid *upgrade* from the 9800 Nvidia can kiss there lead goodbye ><
