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.

Compared to the NVIDIA offerings the ATI ones do struggle here. And compared to the stock HD 5870, we only see a small boost in the average with no difference in the minimum being seen.

Compared to the HD 5870 we see a nice boost here; the model does fall slightly behind the GTX 480 in this test, though.

Like above, we see a nice little boost in performance again. But compared to the more expensive GTX 480, it does sit slightly back when AA is turned on.
