PCI-e 2.0 has no advantage over 1.

Well sure, but no card uses that much bandwidth, except maybe the x2 cards.

i'd bet they'd lean a little mor toward the 4870. nice thread guru.

Which Crysis Warhead test?

My settings are CCC on balanced (not on performance which boosts a few frames), 1680x1050 ENTHUSIAST

The map was Ambush flythrough.

And are you referring to the 4xAA or 0xAA run

those results in Enthusiast @ 16x10 are very impressive... being able to hit over 20fps with 4xAA on a single card (the 4870 AND the 4850!! awesome!!) is quite a feat... nice work on that one gurusan!

It wasnt warhead just crysis, but from what Ive heard and read in several places, Warhead is optimized a little better than Crysis. Most people claim that you get better frame rates in Warhead.
I actually have my settings in the nvidia control panel set to quality. And it was 0xAA. If I could post a screenshot you'd see as its got the crysis benchmark, cpuz and gpuz open.
