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.

 

3DMark06

 

 

The department where AMD have failed over and over, we see the X2 offering really come out ahead from typical results. It's offering gains of over 30% when compared to an overclocked 8800GTS 512MB and gains of over 40% when compared to a stock 8800GTS 512MB.

 

Half Life 2 (Episode One HDR)

 

 

Over the single card solution we get gains of over 25% but it hasn't got anything on the NVIDIA based cards.

 

Prey

 

 

Similar gains can be seen here, but the NVIDIA cards continue to out-perform AMD's offering.
