Default Fermi benchmarking controversy

A moderator on has run the Unigine benchmark at the settings used in nVidia's 'GTX480 vs 5870' slides on his 5850, and the results are surprising.

My results show that they most likely benched a 5850 and not a 5870 as there was only a 1 or 2 FPS difference (and my system is far from optimized whereas theirs is probably a clean install). There is also some slight tilt in their chart still so that could account for the very slight differences. :eek:

edit: Or maybe my 5850 is a 5870 in disguise. :D
His results are in blue.
