Very Detailed Review of R9800XT/FX5950U @ 3DCenter

A very very detailed review of the R9800XT vs the FX 5950U, with AA/AF comparisons.

IT may have choppy english as it's originally in German, and the link below is the Translated through babel version.

Was this review really worth the hassle?

Everyone knows that the ATI cards have got superior AA and AF capabilities.

Does anyone actually bother using these extreme levels of AA and AF?
Is appears to be a complete waste of time unless your a bit of a spotter.

Not if they own nV cards, but if they own ATI cards there is a very small hit for turning up AA/AF, and alot of people with oc'd R9800s (which comprise alot of the people here, and likely alot of 3Dcenter's readers) probaly use it quite often on older titles, and even some newer titles. MaxPayne2, doesn't take a noticeable perfromance hit even on my R9600Pro with AA/AF cranked up. And someone who maybe stuck with a small resolution but powerful card would benifit greatly from higher AA/AF as increased resolution is not an option.

While this may not be for you, alot of people will find they will encounter these situations from time to time.
