AT XT PE, 67.1, -NA-, 45.4

TR 6800U, 86.0, -NA-, -NA-
TR XT PE, 78.8, -NA-, -NA-


A few notes by looking at the above figures:-
1. There is a big difference between AT and FS numbers.
2. In FS article, from 4xAA to 4xAA+8xAF, XT PE drops very minimal (< 4 fps), while 6800U drops 9-13 fps (no TriOpt?).
3. FS article - XT PE clearly wins, AT article - 6800U clearly wins.

Any thoughts?
