So you think the 6800u will have a slight advantage up to 1600x1200 and at 1600x1200 itself, unless AA and AF are applied?
I dont even know if either card will run well under those high settings with large battles.
Tell me what you think....and if you plan on doing any benchmarks with the full version.
Right, all I had at that time was the demo though. I don't have the full version of R:TW but if there's enough interest for it to be benched in reviews I'll probably get it. It does seem to be a very CPU bound game though.

Yes, I do think the 6800 Ultra will have the slight advantage up to 1600x1200 w/ 4xAA and 8xAF. That opinion is based on my past experience with both cards.

You raise a good question about the larger battles. I've yet to confirm whether or not R:TW takes advantage of geometric instancing. If so, that could give the performance nod to the 6800 cards.
