I don't get 1 thing though, Jenny you said that even an oced 285 GTX won't beat the 4890 when the 4890 is OCed to 1 ghz. I dunno I give up.
I really don't care, I just paid for the 4890 XFX, w.e. I still think the 285 GTX is faster, and OC should put it higher.
Thats what I see.
Well, what I said almost a week ago in the other thread is coming true considering these benchmarks.
The way I saw it then, and the way I still see it is this - A 4890 OC'd to 950mhz core is almost exactly the same as a stock 285gtx. I believe (rightly or wrongly) that the maxed oc'd 4890 will just be a tiny bit faster than the maxed OC'd 285gtx. It is so close they are practically even either way.
What those benchmarks don't show is ATI favourable games. No Grid or AoC for starters. The 4890 is taking on and beating the 285 in games that are known to be good towards Nvidia. On top of that, drivers can surely only make the 4890 faster still. The 285 has had a good few months of driver improvements already.
Imo, it really won't be long before the 4890 stock is ahead of the 285gtx stock, or at least equal.
