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

Another gain that equates to around 5% this time and helps move well away from that 60 FPS average we want to see in a situation where there's no minimum.

 

Far Cry 2

Minimum numbers don't really change here, but you can see the average jumps up a good chunk. Unfortunately at 1920 x 1200 the HD 5870 still struggles with 8xAA on with the only model really offering a playable frame rate being the dual GPU HD 5970.

 

World In Conflict

We see a very nice jump under WIC, but again we see most models struggle under this test with the AA and AF cranked up.
