High Quality AA and AF
In our High Quality tests we bump the Antialiasing (AA) and Anisotropic Filtering (AF) up causing the card(s) to be put under more load which usually helps us remove the CPU limitation.
We'll use 4 x AA and 8 x AF as this is quite a common setup for most people who are venturing into the AA and AF area.
We see that at the high resolution Half Life 2 performance is up again compared to the original SLI chipset.
As you would expect, when we start putting more strain on the graphics cards (in this case a high resolution mixed with AA and AF), we begin to see the tables turn.
If you're going to see any real benefit of the full bandwidth provided by the new chipset, you'll have to be running a high resolution with all the settings turned up!
