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 again see the HD 4870 X2 getting a good jump on the GTX 280, though we continue to see that adding a second card yields a very little performance increase.

Cranking up the AA and the AF under WIC sees the HD 4870 X2 get a massive jump on the GTX 280. Adding a second card into the mix also adds another 25% in the performance department. The card really needs to be put under a huge amount of pressure to really shine.
