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.
Turning on AA and AF we can see that 3DMark06 continues to make excellent use of the Dual GPU technology. However, the 9800 GTX still pulls a very respectable 10k with these intensive settings.
Half Life 2 (Episode Two HDR)
With the settings turned up we can really see the GX2 shine; the X2 begins to fall back but the single GPU is the only card to pull under 100FPS.
World In Conflict
While the minimums have nothing more than a single FPS separating them, when we move to the averages we can see that the X2 and GTX perform quite close together. The NVIDIA 9800 GX2 shows a decent gain over the other two cards.
