ATI Catalyst 6.3 Performance Analysis - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

This month we're a little late with our ATI Catalyst analysis but here we are again to check out the latest version.

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 the X1800XT saw a slight bump in non AA and AF tests, here we can see that all cards are scoring almost identical.

 

 

We again see that the mid and high end X1K cards have a slight drop in performance when it comes to Far Cry.

 

 

The OpenGL performance bump is also seen in our AA and AF tests for the X1800XT while the other cards show no change.
