First of all I would like to say I don't really care about which GPU is better in Left4Dead, Unreal Tournament 3, HL2, Call of Duty 5, etc. (seriously can you tell the difference between 70 and 90 FPS?)
However I would like to know on the more intensive games (Crysis, GTA4, STALKER Clear Sky, etc.) which card gets the higher FPS.
Specifically I would like to know which card does better at Crysis (Very High/Enthusiast, 4XAA)
Generally I was lead to believe Nvidia cards run Crysis far better, but for odd reasons numerous benchmarks show the 4890 beating out the Nvidia GTX 275 at Crysis...is this really true?
Unless you are only going to be running crysis why does it matter?...just look at benchmarks between the two and make your decisions on that not on one game engine you think you need to max out...
A agree with you to an extent, however both these cards run most games out there over 60 FPS, and beyond that I really can not tell any difference in smoothness. That's why I believe in games like Crysis and Clear Sky (where +2 or -2 FPS actually matter), the smallest differance in FPS makes me buy a GPU over another.
