ATI Catalyst 5.11 Performance Analysis (X1K Edition) - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

We're back on the job again with a look at the ATI Catalyst 5.11 drivers with the new Radeon X1800XT.

High Quality AA and AF

 

In our High Quality tests we bump the Antialiasing (AA) and Anisotropic Filtering (AF) up causing the card(s) to be put under more load.

 

This usually helps us remove the CPU limitation. We use 4 x AA and 8 x AF as this is quite a common setup for most people who are venturing into the AA and AF area.

 

 

While we did see a performance increase at 1024 x 768 without AA and AF when we turn these features on we don't see anything new.

 

 

Far Cry again with its CPU limitation shows us nothing out of the ordinary.

 

 

For people who want to utilize a certain level of AA and AF they can do that now with the latest drivers with hitting almost an average of 60FPS, which is very playable.
