ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT - AMD's long awaited R600 DX10 GPU arrives - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

Has AMD done enough to take the GPU performance crown with HD 2900 XT? We find out with our first set of benchmarks.

High Quality AA and AF


Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards were not struggling before they will start to now.



In this test we enabled AA and AF to see how things scale. Nvidia's GeForce 8800 GTX has a good lead over the new HD 2900 XT but the old Radeon X1950 XTX is a long way behind AMD's newest GPU.



In our final test, we see the real power of the more expensive GeForce 8800 GTX. Keep in mind the quality settings are set to maximum and with 4 x AA and 16 x AF at 1920 x 1200 the GPUs are pushed almost to their limits.


GeForce 8800 GTX is able to offer a playable gaming experience while the HD 2900 XT sees some driver issues again with these particular settings. Even if the driver was working properly, our numbers would suggest that the XT would be sitting around 50 - 55 average FPS which is not quite high enough for a solid gaming experience.
