The Radeon HD 4850 & 4870: AMD Wins at $199 and $299by Anand Lal Shimpi & Derek Wilson on June 25, 2008 12:00 AM EST

Performance expectations are reset a bit in Oblivion, where the 4870 performs at near the level of a GeForce GTX 260, and the Radeon HD 4850 acts a lot like a GeForce 9800 GTX. Not bad at all, but not the sort of domination we saw in Bioshock. Which just goes to show you that game performance will vary greatly depending on the type of code these GPUs are running.
