High Quality AA and AF

 

All tests with were ran with 6 times FSAA and 8 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled.

 

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

 

 

We see a slight dive in performance when moving to the 5.3s but the 5.4s quickly take care of it and we see similar performance to that of the 5.2s.

 

 

Doom 3 shows us that the 5.3s had the best performance with a very minor 2FPS lead.

 

 

Finally we see that Half Life 2 performance is extremely similar across the board on all drivers.
