Budget Graphics Cards Tested - Q3 2006 VGA Roundup

By: Shawn Baker | Editorials in Video Cards | Posted: Aug 25, 2006 4:00 am

High Quality AA and AF


Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards weren't struggling before they will start to now. ATI are able to offer HDR and AA at the same time unlike nVidia so we have ran our HQ Lost Coast test with HDR on.



Like our first graph we see that the Bravo X1300PRO from PowerColor is a contender to the standard 7300GT but is just nipping on the heels of the DDR3 7300GTs from both Biostar and Palit.



Above 30 is a playable game and while we see the 7300GT DDR3 tipping almost 40 the minimum FPS is going to be a pain so if you want to play with some AA you might want to adjust a few other settings to medium to give you that perfect experience.



AA and AF in Quake 4 is something that you wouldn't think is possible but the 7300GT has absolutely no problems battling the hard task with the Palit 7300GT "Sonic" getting an almost unbelievable 100 FPS average.
