Post Unreal 'optimization' a non-issue?

http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NTAw

HardOCP just did an in depth filtering comparison of the 5900Ultra 44.03 vs. 9800PRO in UT, and came up with the following conclusion:

"In-Game Still Screenshot No AF = 5900 Ultra SLIGHTLY Sharper Textures with no mipmap transitions that are distracting.

In-Game Still Screenshot 8XAF = 9800 Pro SLIGHTLY Sharper Textures with no mipmap transitions that are distracting.

In-Game Movement No AF = Canít tell any difference.

In-Game Movement 8XAF = Canít tell any difference."

...

So, basically, it appears the optimization many have been complaining about is a non-issue.
