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
The GTX 470 was the only card apart from the dual GPU HD 5970 to bring us a playable frame rate here. Compared to the HD 5970 the minimum is boosted beyond which is no doubt the more important of the two numbers. In the average department, though, we can see that the HD 5970 is a fair bit higher. Again, though, this isn't as important if we're over that 30 FPS minimum.
Resident Evil 5
Before we could see the GTX 470 sits in between the HD 5850 and HD 5870. Overclocked, however, we can see it manages to outperform both ATI offerings.
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.
Under H.A.W.X. the overclock has let us go from a card that was trailing the HD 5850 to a card that is outperforming the HD 5870. We can see the overclock has done big things in a number of games and this is one of them.
