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.

Turning on AA and AF, we get a really good idea of how the HD 6870 sits compared to a lot of other cards. Under something like Far Cry 2 and SF IV it has no problem. More intensive games like Mafia II and Aliens vs. Predator does have trouble.
