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.


Resident Evil 5

Turning up the image quality, the HD 5870 Vapor-X continues to see that small bump in performance.


Far Cry 2

With another small bump in performance we can see the extra MHz on offer from the Vapor-X version of the HD 5870 does help slightly. Unfortunately the HD 5870 isn't the best performer under Far Cry 2 with AA and AF on.


World In Conflict

Another nice bump in performance with the Vapor-X OC HD 5870, it's just unfortunate that the minimum FPS is below 30.
