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.

Adding the second card gives us a big enough boost to break that 30 FPS minimum, be it just.

 

World In Conflict

We again see adding a second card gets us over that 30 FPS minimum. Like our non AA tests, though, we see that in the minimum department the HD 5870 CF falls slightly behind.

 

Left 4 Dead

Again, another big boost that shows the HD 5850 CF setup coming in second only to the HD 5870 CF.
