Close to call, but I say the top picture looks a tad bit better.

:eek:

and here I was thinking it was something secshual...

anyways... they look quite similar... certain sections of the wing are better on the top than the bottom... and vice versa...

not that much to choose between.. I'll go with the bottom one for the heck of it... it renders the top of the wing better...

the reference images are a bit on the small side but the bottom would be my choice by a hair for the same reason as sazar.

Top pic looks smoother...

Is this another XGI Volari vs. Radeon AA comparison?? :p:p

The bottom is smoother. Notice in the 400% example the bottom picture shows an extra lighter-shaded pixel at each level on the top edge of the wing. The 200% view gives the best comparison, bottom being smoother.

In actual gameplay you would never be able to tell the two apart, so I vote that they are both awesome. :clap:

The top one appears a bit smoother on the bottom and front of the wing.

I echo Ruined...but IMO top is better at 200 and 400% I don't sit that close to my monitor though or play with microscopes strapped to my head. :D

Top one is smoother to my eyes, it looks maybe a little less detailed but it looked smoother and nicer, and smooth and good looking is what I consider to be the best

I agree with some of the others that in a real world, non-zoomed situation, the differences between these two pictures would be negligable at best.

I agree with CMav, look at the 200% and 400% pics, their respective shader pixels outline more, fading out more gradual. Also, the crease along the wing is more defined, and smoother.

I like it on the bottom!

I'll take her on top. I do mean the pic by the way. :) But I guess it applies in either situtation.

At first I liked the top, but concentrating on the 100% pic I ended up prefering the bottom.

I think the top edge on one looks better and the bottom wing on the other looks better, this in conjunction with the differing choices by other readers seems to indicate smoothness is in the eye of the beholder and it is indeed as ruined said in practice a dead heat .

If it is Ati v nv40 then I would say AA from nv40 is now not less than Ati ( although r420 might push the game on further ), whereas before nv 3x was a lot worse and I had to read 5000 posts on it from some sources :) .

Top picture seems a bit better @400% However, blazing@ 200 FPS no-one will notice.
