The true comparison

Asus Radeon 4850 VS XFX Geforce 9800GT,9800GTX,9800GTX+ and Asus Radeon 4870 VS XFX Geforce 260GTX,9800GTX+

Which will win among these please tell me the truth.I have seen the comparison of these card's on different websites but they are different.For example on Call of Duty 4 on one website I have seen that Asus Radeon 4850 beats XFX Geforce 9800GTX and GTX+.But on anotheer website with the same card's I have seen that Asus Radeon 4850 is beaten by XFX Geforce 9800GTX and GTX+.The same goes for Asus Radeon 4870.So what is the truth?Is Radeon 4850 better or Geforce 9800GTX and GTX+?Is Radeon 4870 better or Geforce 260GTX?

  1. First off, for NVIDIA

    260 (216) > 260 > 9800 GTX+ > 9800 GTX > 9800 GT

    for ATI

    4870 > 4850

    For the most part, manufacturer doesn't matter for performance, unless the card is pre-overclocked. Also note, that some manufacturers do use diffrent clock speeds, but in general, an ASUS 260 = EVGA 260 = XFX 260.

    Comparing NVIDIA to ATI:

    260 (216) = 4870
    9800 GT(X?) = 4850

    Actually, I believe it's 9800GTX+ = 4850.

    Most all the latest reviews leave out something very important in the Nvidia card lineup category especially when it comes to benchmarking comparisons stock vs OCd, single vs SLI.

    You cannot really blame Nvidia for tests not including the 8800GT 512M G92 or the 8800GTS 512M G92[The King of the 2], because you wouldn't want to include cards that OCd out perform the latest offerings from both sides, that would be a product killer for sure.

    My suggestion to you is find yourself an 8800GTS 512MB G92 Graphics Card, you want the truth, there it is!

    And heres an excellent deal!

  4. BFG 8800GTS G92 OC, absolutely love mine.
    These overclock 100-125mhz over stock with ease, and run cool. I think that they are a little overpriced though, they should be down around $150 without rebates. Never the less, I agree they are a great card.
  5. $150 for 8800GTS-512? With (what appears to be) stock cooling? That hardly seems like a deal. You can pick up 8800GT/9800GT for around $100 for perhaps 5% degradation in performance.

    Or at the same price pick up a 4850 for a slight improvement.

    Of course as with past encounters I do not expect you to believe what I'm telling you even though I have no reason what so ever to lie to you, however this forum needs proof sometimes because I am stepping on some cards results here for sure, heres my 8800GT SLI overclocked 726/1819/1003 running 3Dmark06 with default settings same as the tests THG ran.

    My good friend that has 2 8800GTS SLI overclocked his scores are better than these, so make your own decision.

  8. The first thing I'd like to say is I picked the GRAPHICS CARD that would play the game I play most the BEST!

    The game I like most is MS FSX flight sim. I play other games but this one really is my favorite. At Toms GPU charts and others the single 8800GTS 512 G92 played that game better than ANY OTHER card out there period.

    Because I like to play other games as well on occassion I decided to buy 2 so I could run them in SLI should they benefit from that.(Most do)

    An other requirement that MS FSX has is it likes multiple core CPUs. The more the better and the higher the CPU speed the better.

    So my PC is built to do what I want it to do. The specs are as follows;

    M/BD Asus Striker 11 Extreme, bios 1104
    CPU Intel Q9550 2.83 GH Stock. 3.8 at time of test.
    Ram Ocz 16000 2 X 2GB kit
    OP/SYS Vista Home Pre 64
    GPU 2 X 8800GTS 512 G92

    Links to my benches of both single GPU and SLI GPU OC'd. Stock benches to follow soon.



  9. I have a bfg 8800gt oc sli setup as well, they run great with my e8500 overclocked to 3.8ghz. One single 8800gt oc gave me 3dmark06 (default settings) scores of 12,500. Then I added 1 more card for sli and my score improved drastically to 17,200. These cards are only factory oc'ed to 625mhz core but I plan on overclocking them both to 700mhz core and up the memory clock from 900mhz to 1000mhz, then running 3dmark06 again, I wouldn't be surprised to get a score over 18,000 with it ;)
  10. Just noticed this thread is like 2 years old, oh well still good info to anyone looking for a good budget friendly build, especially in this day with all the new more expensive cards out!
