High Detail AA and AF

 

All tests were run with 4 times FSAA and 8 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled with the screen resolution set to 1024 X 768.

 

When running these aggressive detail settings in 1600 x 1200, games really do become unplayable and if people are after image quality they will have to drop the resolution back down to reach playable levels. 1024x768 was chosen as it is still the preferred playable resolution with these settings enabled.

 

 

 

 

 

On average, the performance hit with AA and AF enabled was almost 19% with one peak near almost 40% under Q3A.
