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.
In the first of our high quality benchmarks we see that both cards see about the same performance hit but both are still able to provide decent numbers.
Under Half Life 2 we can clearly see that the X800XL doesn't have as much muscle as the X850XT when we start to ramp up image quality.
Under Doom 3 we see pretty much the same story as in Half Life 2 above.
