High Quality


All tests were run with 4 times FSAA and 8 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled with the screen resolution set to 1024 X 768.


When running these aggressive detail settings in 1600 x 1200, games really do become unplayable and if people are after image quality they will have to drop the resolution back down to reach playable levels.


1024x768 was chosen as it is still the preferred playable resolution with these settings enabled.





With AA and AF enabled you can clearly see how much the X800XT dominates the other cards. The X300 seems to be one of the best cards although with a score of only 1327 it isn't the smoothest run we have had before.


Doom 3



You wouldn't even bother turning on AA or AF if you were using anything other then an X800XT. You can clearly see the results we are getting and 21.9FPS on a X600XT isn't going to be the best game play experience you have had.


Quake 3



Even with AA and AF on you could play Quake 3 on any of these cards at 1024 X 768.
