Gigabyte and XFX - GeForce 8600GT graphics cards go head-to-head (Page 12)

Manufacturer: none

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 were not struggling before they will start to now.

Like our non AA and AF tests we see that we have a bit of a reverse staircase effect. The XXX 8600GT from XFX comes in only just behind the reference 8600GTS.

With increased settings the 8600GTs really take a hit, to be honest though you are not going to be gaming at these settings on any of the cards here.
