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
AA performance is strong for the NVIDIA offerings and we're able to see that with the overclock we're able to move nice and far away from that 30 FPS minimum. The HD 5870 just gets smashed in this test as well. While the average is decent, the minimum is way down.
Resident Evil 5
Good performance across the board. We want an average of 60 FPS and we get it from all cards. The Gainward GTX 470 Golden Sample helps us just move a little further away which is always appreciated.
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.
Unfortunately here the only card that's able to break the 60 FPS average we need to see is the GTX 480. All the other setups are going to need a detail drop.
