PC Games Hardware ran graphics cards benchmarks with Battleforge. Apparently Radeon cards get a performance boost because of DirectX 10.1.
Looks like a win for ATi
Ok so please tell me how a GTX 285 coming top and beating the ATI cards translates into a "win" for ATI ? I am no fanboy but that just doesn't make sense.
It's dual Chip Nvidia 285 vs. Single chip ATi 4870 and the conclusion is telling me the same, so ...
the 285 is a single chip, the 295 is the double one
Now, i am here torn between a 1gb XFX Geforce GTX 285 and a 1gb Diamond Radeon 4870.....which one should i buy??? I know for a fact that the radeon card has 800 streaming processors and the xfx one only has 240 BUT the memory clock on the xfx kills the 4870 memory clock which only runs at 900mhz compared to the 2480mhz on the XFX................im torn
Are u kidding me? theres no comparison here. I f u want a silent card with top drivers and hardware physx go gtx 285. Having 3-sli myself trust me u wont regret it.
Alright man sounds good, right now im running a BFG 9800GTX+ oc i barely bought it not 4 weeks ago and i am really satisfied BUT i want more POWA........lol.........so GTX 285 it is.

Cool man thanks.
The graphics in this game are kinda awesome.
Well...in the debate of the gtx285 vs 4870 I definitely think bang for your buck come into play here. You can pick up a 4870 for $189.99 (DX 10/10.1 and compatible with DX11 games) on newegg right now. By contrast the gtx285 (DX10 only) retails for $399.99 so that is double the price. You have to ask yourself: Is it worth it? If I were in the market for a new GPU right now I would pick up a 4890 which are coming out Apr.3 I think. They're basically a superclocked 4870 and from the benchies I've seen, these suckers are fast. 4890 CF averaging 60FPS in Crysis. Or you can wait until June (I think) and see what ATi/Nvidia come out with in the way of DX11 cards. Up to you, just trying to help mate! Cheers!
