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.
Far Cry 2
NVIDIA shines in AA, there's no denying that and it's going to be a strong selling point to people. In the average department, though, the HD 5970 is significantly faster for some reason. Of course, it's the least important of the two numbers. In the minimum dept. the GTX 480 manages to beat out the dual GPU beasts from ATI.
Resident Evil 5
In saying that, AA doesn't always shine for NVIDIA when compared to the HD 5970. You can clearly see the HD 5970 TOXIC 4GB from Sapphire is putting out some devastating numbers here.
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.
With no minimum we want to see an average of 60 FPS. You can see that the GTX 480 and reference HD 5870 are actually spot on at 64 FPS. Again, though, like we mentioned earlier this is the minimum of what we want to see. At this level the extra FPS is noticeable. Sapphire come in, pulling out their paddle and start spanking everything with a 50% gain over the reference GTX 480 and HD 5970.
