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
