Strange. The HD4870 has "relatively high power consumption" as a low, yet you never tested it. Or did you, and forgot to include the results?

Power consumption tests from other sites put the 4870 at around 70-85W on idle.

I wonder what happened to PowerPlay+?

Why does a card need 70-85W for 2D when IGP can do it with about 10W. That's about $4-7 a month just for doing 2D.

thats with 4XAA !!
Tpwrup: 61 fps Xbit: 37 fps

just a sample of the many review's of the 4800's lately, which results are at least 10% higher..than Xbit's:

"HD 4800 architecture is strong enough to be competitive even in unfriendly environmentsl"
Yah you can say that again Xbit labs....

Rubbish Article

I am truly shocked that Xbit labs managed to come to a completely performance conclusion that every other hardware website.

Wonder if Xbitlabs are using the correct drivers + patch ?. Starting wonder if we are dealing with a fan boy reviewer ?

And before you lot start, I am not a fanboy, running a 8800GTX.

McKnight you are an ass

I asked what driver not what settings

These go against this article -
http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/video/display/20080704150832_Nvidia_Plans_Further_Pr ice_Cuts_for_Latest_Graphics_Cards.html

where it says that the 4850 takes on the GTX280

Mcknight, you are a noob and this website is getting worse every week

and looking at McKnight, I can see what asses read this website

Wow, please review your English please.

As a member of this fine site, they did worked hard at putting this review together. There is no need to bash, it just makes the basher look like he or she has no IQ points.

And please try to relocate your CAPS LOCK key, it is annoying.

For most people i know this review is a complete waste of time, to make it something i suggest you include results from the GTX 260 and 280.

Jesus H, I can't believe some of the comments I'm seeing here. Cold-blooded much?!

It would've been nice to see the GTX 260/80 in there, but it's far from a "crap review".

lol this is one of the most biased reviews I have ever read. whenever the 9800gtx outperforms the 4850 or 4870 the author belittles the outcome and whenever the 4850 or 4870 beats the 9800gtx by even marginal amounts the author describes it as a triumph of computing.

Wow the 4850 is as good as nvidias 6 month old 9800gtx wow wow I mean that's really driving the industry.
