Assassin's Creed is capped at near 60 fps, which is why we see most cards reaching but not significantly exceeding that marker. Performance of the Radeon HD 4870 continues to be strong, but because of the frame rate cap we're not able to see if the GTX 280 could stretch its legs further and eventually outperform the 4870. In actual gameplay, the 4870 and GTX 280 appear to be equals.
