ATI Vs Nvidia!
ATI, the graphics division of AMD is working full force to win the battle which is going on between them and Nvidia, I know that right now Nvidia is the king when it comes to high-end graphics cards, their single gpu GeForce GTX 285 and dual gpu GeForce GTX 295 are unbeatable but ATI is taking the lead in mid-range cards with price vs performance ratio.
ATI, after cutting prices for their Radeon HD 4800 series has become very competitive for Nvidia in mainstream level.

Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 VS ATI Radeon HD 4870!
ATI Radeon HD 4870 is a performance mainstream video card that performs close to and in some games neck-to-neck with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 260 (216 Core) video card and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 260 (216 Core) graphics card is available for around $240.00 whereas ATI’s Radeon HD 4870 card sells for around $210.00, so, price/performance ratio wise ATI wins here.
Nvidia recently launched GeForce GTS 250 video card and Radeon HD 4850 video card which sells for around $150.00 is the main competitor of GeForce GTS 250. Benchmarks seen over at internet shows that GeForce GTS 250 takes the lead in most of the games over Radeon HD 4850 and GeForce 9800 GTX+.
If you will compare GeForce GTS 250 to Radeon HD 4870, GeForce GTS 250 will left behind by Radeon HD 4870 in almost all of the games, so, I don’t think there is any point in comparing GTS 250 with HD 4870.
This battle which is going on between ATI and Nvidia is not going to over here because when one company take some action the other one does something in it’s reaction, so, expect more to come your way, it’s good for you. 🙂
