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.
Far Cry 2
We can see that the NVIDIA offerings smash the ATI ones under FC2 when the detail is cranked up. Unfortunately the minimum is just a bit too low for this setup to be considered playable.
World In Conflict
We again see the GTX 260+ perform very well here compared to the ATI card. But once again, the minimum is just a little bit too low for our liking, so we would probably stick to playing this game without AA and AF.
Left 4 Dead
Both the HD 4870 and GTX 260+ perform well here, but we still find the average is a bit low. The minimum would be dipping below that crucial 30 FPS mark as well.
