GeForce 8800GT vs Radeon HD4870 1GB - FarCry2

Recently upgraded my aging 8800GT to the mighty HD4870 with a luxurious 1GB of GDDR5 to play FarCry 2 =)

Bench it with the exact same settings, average result is taken after 3 loops of small ranch.

Get ready for some insane frame rates!

8800GT 512MB OC (713/1728/2000)

HD4870 1GB OC (790/3800)

WHAT?! HD4870 1GB is only 1.4fps faster than 8800GT?!
