"In the long run in this GPU generation, I *expect* SP for SP that an NV GPU will be about 2.5x faster than an ATI SP. This is of course then modified by SP count and processor clock. If Mike finds a structural optimization to his code, then I will revisit that ratio, but that's my prediction for now. And the game resets with the next hw generation anyway so it's an ongoing arms race.".
Nvidia GTX 280 = 240 Shaders x 2.5 = 600
ATI HD4870 = 800 Shaders = 800
Going by those numbers it looks like a HD4870 is going to be about 25% faster than a GTX 280 in terms of folding power simply due to the number of shaders the RV770 core has.
