It is better than all other cards and costs $500? I think it maxes crysis with AA too.

There's nothing bad about it. It's just that the flagship nVidia card currently dominates the flagship ATI card.

the specs between ati and nvidia are different.

but the 295 > 4870x2.

nvidia clocks their sp's higher than ati's.

so the 1600sp's on the 4870x2 just are not better than the 480 on the 295
also, the 295 has superior bandwidth.

when compairing between ati and nvidia, use benchmarks over specs.

The GTX 295 is faster, doesnt matter if it has lower core clocks.

It has a wider bus (448bit vs 256bit) which allows the GDDR3 to stretch out and keep up with GDDR5 on a 256bit bus.

Also, nvidias sp's are indeed faster and clocked higher.
