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
Far Cry 2 AA performance wasn't great when we looked at the single card. While it was a good jump from the HD 4890, it was still below that 30 FPS minimum we need to see. CrossFire fixes that, however. While the minimum is behind the GTX 295, the average is way up for the CF setup.
World In Conflict
We see a good jump in performance here. We could probably almost move to 2560 x 1600 with these settings. Compared to the GTX 295 we're seeing a good gain for the ATI offering in the minimum and average department.
Left 4 Dead
Our last graphics test doesn't hold any surprises. We see the GTX 295 again fall behind the HD 5870 CF setup with it again putting out some seriously good numbers.
