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.

HD 6970 - We can see a couple of extra FPS here; the best gains come under Far Cry 2 which doesn't surprise us as it saw some great gains in our non AA tests.

 

HD 6870 - Turning on AA and AF, we can see across the board we've got a couple of FPS here and there. It's good to see the positive FPS trend is seen when we really crank up the detail.

 

HD 5870 - Apart from a bit of positive movement in Far Cry 2, we don't see too much change with the latest driver.
