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

 

 

AA/AF performance continues to suffer, though it's not all that far behind the 9600GT.

We can see that all three cards are only separated by a single FPS, so really there is nothing in it.

 

World In Conflict

 

 

 

The HD 3870 can't manage to keep up with the 9600GT here with it getting left behind a fair bit.
