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
The GTX 470 performs very strong in this test and it doesn't matter what the OC is, it simply wouldn't be able to match the performance it offers here. Compared to the stock clocked HD 5850 we see a slight bump in the average, but nothing too serious.
Resident Evil 5
While the GTX 470 again pulls out a win here, the HIS HD 5850 Turbo does help close the gap from a 5 FPS difference with the standard HD 5850 to a 2 FPS one.
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.
The ATI offerings perform stronger here and the Turbo version of the HIS HD 5850 is able to increase the lead on offer by an even greater margin thanks to the extra MHz on offer.
