NVIDIA's 1.4 Billion Transistor GPU: GT200 Arrives as the GeForce GTX 280 & 260by Anand Lal Shimpi & Derek Wilson on June 16, 2008 9:00 AM EST

With Assassin's Creed we're back to normal - the 9800 GX2 is on top, generally outperforming the GTX 280. Assassin's Creed scales well with multiple GPUs and thus even the 8800 GT SLI can outperform the GTX 280 here. A pair of 8800 GTs actually have more processing power than a single GTX 280, despite having fewer SPs. While the GTX 280 has 240 SPs to the 8800 GTs 112 (or 224 in SLI), the GTX 280 runs its SPs at just under 1.3GHz while the 8800 GT runs them at 1.5GHz.
The GTX 260 manages to outperform the Radeon HD 3870 X2, but obviously also loses to the 8800 GT SLI.
