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.


Resident Evil 5




We're seeing a similar picture to what we've seen all along with the HD 5970 falling slightly behind the HD 5870 CF setup and its higher clock speeds. Compared to the GTX 295, however, performance for ATI is very strong here.


Far Cry 2






Both the HD 5970 and HD 5870 CF are able to achieve a minimum higher than 30 FPS which is exactly what we want to see. We can see that the HD 5870 CF setup manages to squeeze out an extra few FPS.


World In Conflict






With World in Conflict literally maxed out as far as settings go, we can see that all cards struggle to break the 30 FPS minimum. The HD 5970 sits again behind the HD 5870 CF setup. Hopefully a bit of overclocking can help yield those extra FPS we need to overtake the HD 5870 CF setup and break that 30 FPS minimum.
