High Quality AA and AF
All tests with the ATI Radeon cards were ran with 6 times FSAA and 8 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled while the nVidia GeForce cards were ran with 4 times FSAA and 8 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled all the screen resolution set to 1024 X 768.
When running these aggressive detail settings in 1600 x 1200, games really do become unplayable and if people are after image quality they will have to drop the resolution back down to reach playable levels.
1024x768 was chosen as it is still the preferred playable resolution with these settings enabled.
While we were testing the 6800 Ultra under 3DMark03 with High Quality settings, the results were consistently lower then the 6600GT. All we can put this down to is the fact that we are using an early reference model as opposed to full retail versions like the other three cards we are looking at.
You can clearly see that the X850XT and X800XL stand out from the other two cards though.
Again the 6800 Ultra was performing quite poorly here with the X800XL and X850XT well and truly in front of both cards.
Doom 3 sees the same problem with the 6600GT ahead. The X850XT does just sneak ahead of the other cards but not by a lot.
We find that the 6800 Ultra gives us a correct result here with it scoring between the X800XL and X850XT.
While you can see that the results show the X850XT and X800XL just beating the nVidia counterparts you should take note that both the ATI cards were running with a 6X AA instead of a 4X like the nVidia graphics cards showing just how powerful these cards are when it comes to high quality gaming.
