ATI Catalyst Drivers of 2005 - The Ultimate Analysis!

By: Shawn Baker | AMD Radeon Drivers in Software | Posted: Dec 20, 2005 5:00 am

High Quality AA and AF with RADEON X550

 

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.

 

ATI Radeon X1800 XL, (256 MB) Graphic Card

 

 

Like the non AA and AF tests we can see that performance has increased throughout the year.

 

 

While Far Cry is normally CPU limited at these settings the only limitation here is the X550.

 

 

The lack of power of the X550 shows us a very limited amount of performance over the year.
