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 see a pretty standard picture here; the 8800GT has a good little lead while the 9600GT follows and the HD 3870 comes in at the back.
Half Life 2 (Episode Two HDR)
We see that there are only a few FPS between all three cards with these settings.
World In Conflict
When we turn on AA and AF we see the HD 3870 really begin to fall behind. It could keep up in the non AA tests, but it struggles when these options are turned on.
