    DX 10.1 was enabled with Assassin's Creed, but they removed it in a later patch. You can see it clearly and greatly improves performance compared to DX 10 Crysis (The Nvidia cards do not have DX 10.1)

    Oh, this thread also shows that the 4870 is a great card

    The 4870 owns the GTX 280 if the game has DX 10.1 enabled

    Wow, this sucks. They remove DX 10.1 because its bad for business even though it almost doubles performance.
    That just really sucks.

    The 4870 has heating issues that can kill gaming performance.

    Therefor, it is not a good card, not matter how good it is when not blowing itself up.

    I've read that the problem is the fan - it is very small, and doesn't go to 100% when needed - if you use a program to manually adjust fan speed, it is fine.

    The fact that the HD 3000 series had problems on nVidia motherboards still scares me from buying the new ones.
