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
While doing well in our normal Far Cry 2 tests, like the HD 4890 when we crank up the AA in the game it does fall to the back of the pack a fair bit. Compared to the GTX 285, though, we can see it sits under that important 30 FPS minimum we want to see.
World In Conflict
The HIS HD 5870 manages to do a good job of sitting right in the middle of the two NVIDIA offerings here. We can see that we've got an extra few FPS over the GTX 285 in the minimum department; sitting at just over 30, those extra few FPS are handy.
Left 4 Dead
We again see the HD 5870 perform strongly against the GTX 285 in L4D. Compared to the GTX 295, though, there's really only a very minor difference with these HQ settings.
