    no a 4870 is on par with a 3870x2 and the 3870x2 beats a 4850 read some reviews. The 4870 beats the 3870x2 but not all the time. It would be similar to a 9800gx2 and a 280 gtx.

    So you're trying the say the 3870x2 is stronger than the gtx 260? Fat chance.

    3870x2 beats 4850 in low resolutions with no AA, btw.

    If you mean "4870 is on par with 3870x2" by being 25% better, you're right.

    Thought you were saying something else.
