what the heck does this mean?

it doesn't have to be "simulated" because it DOES beat the 285 and 280.

and I don't think that the 4870x2 was running against a 295 with good drivers to have that much of a victory in all those charts

Those were 'virtual' benchmarks as the 295 wasn't released yet, but real world performance shows otherwise?

my sentiments exactly

Those charts are BS. All reviews Ive seen show the Gtx 295 the winner in all benchmarks. What the hell is a simulated benchmark anyway......

 

Here ya go

 

#1

 

#2

 

Enjoy

ironically where they quoted "simulated" in the 4850x2 vs 285, it's actually true that the 4850x2 beats the 285 (though not by THAT much) but the 295 does beat the 4870x2 in pretty much everything

Don't you mean:

 

but the 295 does beat the 4870x2 (though not by THAT much) in pretty much everything. ?

Also don't forget the price difference:

 

$424.88 ( Cheapest I could find)

$479.30 ( Cheapest I could find)

 

Is it really worth the extra $50 for a few more FPS?

I'm just saying if you're willing to waste money on the 4870x2 why not go all the way. lol

 

personally I think the 4870x2 is made pointless by it's $290 dollar little brother, the 4850x2 which is amazing for the money. and like 80-90% of the 4870x2's power

Maybe people feel that GDDR5 sounds better then GDDR3?

some people haven't seen a 280 beat a 4870?

 

I'm not arguing against the 4870x2 being a bad card, I just think they never should have released the 4850x2 since it's soooo much better for the money than the 4870x2
