Performance on these High End cards in most games are well above what most arguably would call playable. This issue mainly affects benchmark comparisons. Also, according to the sourced German articles, the new AMD cards(68xx) have under-filtering even when you select HQ from their menu in comparison to even their older cards(58xx) let alone their competing counterparts.
