High Quality AA and AF

 

We decided to test using high quality 6x AA and 8x AF to see if the new drivers offer an increase in performance in this area.

 

 

3DMark03 sees a little performance jump here when using AA and AF.

 

 

We see that Doom 3 has given us the same results as the previous generation; Doom 3 is extremely video card intensive and shows very consistent results when benchmarking.

 

 

Here we again see a slight performance jump in HL2 when using AA and AF.
