High Quality AA and AF

 

All tests with were ran with 4 times FSAA and 8 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled.

 

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

 

 

Bumping up the AA and AF saw the X850XT take a little bit of a hit when compared to the previous driver release, the X700 and X300 both stood still with no difference between the new and old set of drivers.

 

 

Like the previous Doom 3 results at the lower resolution we saw the X850XT and X700 get a little increase in speed even when turning AA and AF on.
