Yeah, ATI needs to drop their prices so the HD4870 1GB can remain competitive at a lower price point.

Here we go again.....

There is a reason a half dozen sites have the EXACT same article, posted on the EXACT same day, using the EXACT same cards. 'nuff said.

Either way you look at it, both cards offer amazing performance for the price.

Gotta love graphs that make a couple of FPS look like a huge difference

Agreed, that being said the 260 GTX still has a lead over the 4870 apparently, misleading graph or not.

Frankly I see too many conflicting benchmarks, and the websites I trust show the 260+4870 1GB pretty much neck and neck trading blows. In my opinion, until proven otherwise by sites like HWC or [H] I will continue to consider the 4870 1GB and 260GTX(216) at the same level.

Can't wait to see SKYMTL's benches.
