ATI Catalyst 6.2 Performance Analysis

By: Shawn Baker | AMD Radeon Drivers in Software | Posted: Feb 10, 2006 5:00 am

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.

 

This usually helps us remove the CPU limitation. We 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.

 

 

3DMark05 shows us a small increase in the mid to high end range but no performance difference for the X1300.

 

 

Far Cry again sees performance increases across the board from the lower end X1300 to the higher end X1800.

 

 

Quake 4 sees a healthy increase in the mid to high end sector with the X1300 seeing no performance difference.
