I found this while looking around on the net. I haven't seen it posted here ..... so I hope it wasn't but anyway I found it fairly fun considering I like ATI! I also want to make you aware I found these benchmarks in another forum. So there is a chance they could be fake..... although just buy looking at them and by doing something similar with my 5870 and my Friends 5970 I doubt it. So take it with a grain of salt! http://www.overclock.net/graphics-cards-general/682409-5970-vs-gtx-480-vs-5870-a.html While the GTX480 seems to do very well in Tessellation it still doesn't hang with the 5970. It is closer than I expected but still not close enough! Also I wonder if there is a reason Nvidia is only talking up the Tessellation on the GTX 480. I have a feeling the gaming quality is only comparable to the 5870. And if that is the case and the thermal rumors of the GTX 480 turn out to be true...... I doubt we will see a x2 verison Fermi any time soon. Which would mean ATI has finally after all this time pulled off a win. The bad news is though if that is true...... we won't see prices drop anytime soon! I also would like to add that I have a feeling that the cause of some of these dips are created by the fact that ATI still doesn't always have the best drivers! If they could straighten out that mess that would be half the battle right there!
