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.





We can see that the AA and AF performance really suffers on the AMD cards when compared to the NVIDIA 8800GT, this being of no surprise to us of course.

We can see AA performance continues to be down compared to the 8800GT, but the good thing is you're still going to be able to do a bit of AA gaming in source based games on the 3850.





AMD have to get the AA issue sorted ASAP, as it really does put them in a bad light. You throw them into an OpenGL based game where NVIDIA already has the advantage and you can just see them really drop back.
