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.
Turning on AA we can see the HD 3870 manages to drop back and the 9600GT is able to come out ahead with no dramas. We of course continue to see the 8800GT show a nice lead though.
Half Life 2 (Episode Two HDR)
Half Life Episode Two's performance is a bit all over the place, but only 3 FPS separates the cards.
World In Conflict
We again see the 9600GT is able to beat out the HD 3870 when it comes to AA and AF.
