Default Re: The Official HD 6000 Series Review thread

What's up with the AF filtering?

Uns fiel zu Beginn der Tests auf, dass der anisotrope Filter der HD-6800-Karten im Vergleich mit einer Radeon HD 5870 stärker flimmert. Nach Rücksprache mit AMD teilte man uns mit, dass die Standardeinstellung "Qualität" aggressiver filtert als der bisherige Treiberstandard (A.I. Standard; dort seien die Texturfilteroptimierungen bei der HD-5800-Reihe bereits deaktiviert)

They recognized that the new standard "quality" setting has more shimmering than the old AI standard setting. AMD confirmed that optimizations are more aggressive in the new quality setting.

So AMD fixed the banding problem, but increased sample optimizations in the driver default setting, which is used by the most reviewers. This probably gives a significant performance gain over GeForce and the old Radeon HD 5000 @ Cat 10.9.
