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 and the GeForce 8800 series are able to offer HDR and AA at the same time unlike older nVidia cards.
When we start to increase the detail, we see a similar picture with 3DMark06 - the overclocked GTS is just trailing a stock clocked GTX and the overclocked GTX is still consistently ahead.
In Lost Coast when we aren't seeing a CPU limitation, we can see that it is able to make use of the new found performance from both cards.
While PREY only saw gains at 1280 x 1024 with regular quality settings, when we turn on AA and AF, we can see at 1920 x 1200 both cards offer a good increase in performance.
