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 on the AA, we can see that the GTX 470 manages to perform very strong with it being the only single GPU card being able to break the 30 FPS minimum barrier under Far Cry 2 with 8x AA. Apart from the dual GPU card from ATI, the GTX 470 is the only other card to come through that offers us playable frame rates under these settings.


Resident Evil 5




Again with the AA, we see some good numbers. Without a minimum we want to see around 60 FPS in the average department and you can see we're there. The extra 5 FPS over the HD 5850 equates to the card being almost 10% faster.


Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.




H.A.W.X. doesn't seem so kind on the GTX 470 with the model falling behind the HD 5850 here. Apart from the HD 5970 getting over a 60 FPS average, we don't really have a playable setup on any of these other models.
