Default ATI HD4870X2 will be up to 80% faster than NVIDIA GTX280

Quote:
As we know, AMD new generation flagship product R700 will be better than NVIDIA GTX280. R700 (Radeon HD4870X2) 2GB will be 50% better than GTX280 at average while it will be 80% better than GTX280 at most. Besides, 2GB GDDR3 R700PRO (Radeon HD4850X2) will be also better than GTX280. (~source)

they forgot to mention: only in games which scale well with CF.
Because if you encounter a game like... Crysis.. single GTX 280 is better than HD4870 in CF: http://techreport.com/articles.x/14990/12

I think Crytek assumed there would be some sort of super single-core GPU out by now. Unless the new Crysis expansion makes the engine more easily parallelized graphically, Very High isn't going to clear a steady 60fps until sometime next year when the next architectures come out at the earliest.

not true, check 9800 GTX SLI scaling @ Techreport, beats GTX 280

SLI/CF can work good and provide speedboost, problem is that it is not guaranteed and with a single GPU there's no "chance" factor. Either the game works or it doesn't. With SLI/CF you always have the chance factor of "will it scale"
