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.

Crank up the detail and the HD 4870 X2 CFX setup falls to its knees. The Quad SLI puts on a good show while the main attraction continues to be the Tri-SLI setup.

 

World In Conflict

Like we've seen for the most part, the HD 4870 X2 CFX setup comes in last followed by the GTX 295 Quad SLI one and the Tri-SLI GTX 285 configuration coming out on top.

 

Left 4 Dead

We again see Left 4 Dead gives ATI another win, but this time we see the Tri-SLI setup chalk up a good win against the Quad SLI configuration. Without AA on we saw the two SLI setups perform quite close on our last page.
