I just finished putting together the following antialiasing comparison page.

http://www.nvnews.net/reviews/sapphi...mparison.shtml

Some of you are already familiar with the testing program, but I was trying to find a better way to present the results. The page contains Javascript, so I hope it works for you

wow! nice work Mike.

4x ati is very effective, now I know why Ive been using it.

it is markedly better than nv's 4x.

4x ati looks better than 8x nvidia.

for me the sweet spot has really been 4x AA - 16xAF @ at least 1280x960x32. everything is so crisp and clear, I cant say I notice any jaggies. just incredible.

one thing is sure, high res is no substitute for AA.

Absolutely amazing! Thanks for the comparison.

Glad you like your new card MikeC.
The ATI AA definitely seems to win in the comparison pictures you posted even comparing ATI's 6X against NV's 8X.

I have had a 9700 Pro for about 8 months and I am still impressed with it. The AA & AF quality just blows me away. I swear it also makes old games look almost new. I just started to replay Vampire Redemption The Masquerade . It runs smooth as a babies bottom at 1600X1200 4X AA -16X AF and looks much better then when I first played it 3 years ago. Grabbed a screen, link below- 144K not 56k friendly

Whew! Ya know, I've rarely bought more than 2 graphics cards from the same manufacturer back to back. The reasons being that I want the best bang for the buck but I also like making my rig into a guinea pig every so often. I've never bought more than 2 3Dfx cards before jumping to nVidia. With nVidia, I've purchased the G2MX, GF2 Ti, and my current Ti4200 so that makes 3 for nVidia.

However, I've never owned an ATi card...and I think it's about time I do!

I would love to hear from someone who has run both cards for an extended period with numerous games regarding their personal impressions of IQ and speed. Which card provided the more enjoyable gaming experience overall?

Overclocking Tests:

Default clock speeds were listed as 378MHz / 351MHz. I believe the standard clock speeds for the Radeon 9800 Pro are 380MHz / 340MHz.

Was able to run at 439MHz / 383MHz before artifacts appeared in the UT2003 Flyby benchmark. Had to throttle down to 414MHz / 374MHz to complete all four 3DMark03 game tests without artifacts showing up.

First result is at 378MHz / 351 MHz. Second result is at 414MHz / 374MHz.

UT2003 Flyby:

1280x1024 - from 147 fps to 155 fps
1600x1200 - from 106 fps to 116 fps

3DMark03:

GT1 - from 171.9 fps to 176.0 fps
GT2 - from 37.7 fps to 40.9 fps
GT3 - from 33.5 fps to 35.8 fps
GT4 - from 33.0 fps to 36.0 fps

Overall - from 5501 to 5876

I have and surprisingly, I was completely ignored.
