XFX managed to score the highest result in Crysis. We see that XFX manages to make the highest performance gap at 2560x1600 and no AA – at that resolution it manages to beat the GTX 480 by 8.7%.
GTX 470 did manage to beat the HD 5870 by up to 17% in FarCry 2, but Crysis is another story. In this game, the HD 5870 beats the GTX 470 by 22-29%. Since the GTX 470 is slower than the GTX 480, and Crysis rates both GTX 480 and HD 5870 almost identically, it was clear that GTX 470 won’t come out on top.
