HIS Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card in Crossfire - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

Having checked out both the new HD 6850 and HD 6870 cards separately, it's now time to turn our attention to other areas of interest with the new models. First up? Some HD 6850 Crossfire goodness thanks to HIS coming aboard. Has scaling improved?

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.

Performance in CF is strong and compared to the HD 5970 performance between the two setups is very similar. Apart from Mafia II, scaling performance again from the HD 6850 setup is very strong with it tipping almost 100% at some points. As for playable numbers, AVP falls just behind the 60 FPS average we want, but everything else is at playable levels.
