Default Re: ATi benches inflated by reduced AF

This thread is making me want to spend some of my "graduation" money on a sparkly new GTX 580 just so I can test image quality between it and my current HD 5870. From what I've seen, both cards have incredible image quality, with the Nvidia card maybe being slightly ahead based on offered levels of AA alone. Image quality is ALWAYS subjective as it can only be evaluated based on on "by sight" evaluations. However, since we are human, none of us view IQ exactly the same.

Seriously, this bickering is getting old though. I may pull out my trusty 9800 GTX+ for some quick comparisons tomorrow. There's really only 1 game to this date that I've found that is really biased towards Nvidia in AF quality: Trackmania United Forever. I have a few current games, but nothing super new.

Any suggestions?
