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.

We can see good performance here when compared to the HD 4890, but performance in this high quality situation does give the GTX 285 one of its only wins here today.

Fortunately the HD 5870 doesn't struggle that much with AA. In this high quality setup we see that it breaks the 30 FPS minimum, giving us the same score as the GTX 285. Moving to the averages, we can see it manages to get almost 10% on the GTX 285.

 

Left 4 Dead

Under L4D we see good gains again with the card performing very well, sitting not all that far behind the GTX 295.
