According to 3Dmark Vantage the GeForce GTX 460 SLI configuration is 75% faster than a single card at 1920x1200. Put in other words, the GTX 460 SLI cards are 22% faster than the Radeon HD 5870 and 25% faster than the GeForce GTX 480. Should this be close to reality (actual in-game performance) then we are onto something here.
