Are you talking about a laptop system ?? - the benchmarks you are looking at are probably the desktop versions of those cards which are not comparable to the cut down powersaving MOBILE versions of the cards !!

Double post? Same answer. Check out the table on page 1:

An underclocked 4870 is far more powerful than an underclocked 8800GT.
