Default Re: ATi benches inflated by reduced AF

LOL- and thank you. It's been too long since I've used ATi's CP. I was trying to use that "Basic" as part of my testing, ran these using the fine "Catalyst AI" in conjunction with the all encompassing "Restore Defaults" and then forcing 16X AF. (i.e. I finally did it right)

Here's what I found for difference in "modern, commonly benchmarked games":

So, about 10% on Far Cry2, and over 6% on Metro 2033. The Default 16X definitely has more shimmer going on, if you run these just look around for patches of the screen to start to sparkle and shimmer.
intel 990X + 2 X EVGA 3GB GTX580 + 3 X Acer GD235Hz

Rig 2:
intel 2500K + NVIDIA GTX590 + Dell 3007 WFPHC
