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 weren't struggling before they will start to now.

 

Far Cry 2

Turning AA and AF on, we can see the 3.8GHz setup does come out slightly faster.

 

World In Conflict

WIC finds a good extra 4FPS with the 3.8GHz setup in the minimum department, bringing us so close to that 30FPS minimum we love to see.

 

Left 4 Dead

Under Left 4 Dead we can see the overclock does very little when it comes to extra performance here, with both setups scoring almost identically.
