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 and AF under 3DMark06, we can see that the 9800 GX2 is performing the best. The ZOTAC 280 just trails behind with the GIGABYTE 280 just trailing a little bit more behind.
World In Conflict
Turning on AA and AF under WIC sees the 9800 GX2 really struggle and the two GTX 280s come out ahead. The overclock on offer does put ZOTAC's offering noticeably in front of the GIGABYTE in this situation.
