Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 X2 Graphics Card - High Quality AA and AF

The HD 3870 X2 has proven itself to be quite the beast in some situations. We look at a reference model from Sapphire.

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

 

 

Turning on AA and AF cripples the AMD offerings, but the dual GPU solution doesn't have any dramas coming out ahead in this synthetic test.

 

Half Life 2 (Episode Two HDR)

 

 

With the Source engine being able to make such good use of Crossfire we can see that it's able to give us big gains with these high settings against the other setups.

 

World In Conflict

 

 

 

We continue to see the single HD 3870 get hurt with AA and AF being enabled, though we can see with the extra power of the X2 that it's able to beat out the 8800GT again by a good margin. So it should though, considering the price difference!
