Just leave it on quality. There is no visual difference between HQ and Q, but there is a big performance hit.

I'd have to do some hunting but a few sites detailed the differences for the april 4th reviews of the cards.

Nice to hear JakUp, that means they are on their way. Wait for the new drivers today. They should give somes goods with FarcCry.

Btw, I thought, angle depent AF couldn't be disabled?

"High Quality apparently turns off angle-adaptive anistropic filtering"

-- hexus nv40 preview

"NVIDIA was also kind enough to expose a setting in its driver that allows the user to disable its adaptive anisotropic filtering optimizations by choosing "High quality" image settings. In this case, both ATI and NVIDIA use adaptive aniso, so disabling this optimization wouldn't really be fair. Also, I spent some time trying to find visual difference between NVIDIA's adaptive aniso and non-adaptive aniso (using different angles of inclination, looking for mip-map level of detail changes, doing mathematical "diff" operations between screenshots) and frankly, I didn't find much of anything. I did benchmark the two modes, as you'll see in our texture filtering section, but I could find no reason not to leave NVIDIA's adaptive aniso turned on during our tests."

Congrats, daggumit. Okay, I'm a little jealous.

Sigh...maybe I'll win the chance to purchase one with eVGA's drawing on the 5th.

Anyway, thanks for sharing how it is all going.

Is there a big hit if you go for 4*AA+16*AF or 4*AA+8*AF JakUp?

I'm not so sure that non-angle dependent AF was actually enabled in the Forceware drivers that were sent out to reviewers. This could be why the reviewer found it very difficult to find any pic where there is a difference in IQ.

4x/8x compared to 2x/4x the hit is pretty large.. sometimes as much as 30fps, and I really can't see much of an iq difference between the 2. They are both playable, but I prefer the ultra smoothness So for now 1600x1200 2xaa/4xaf suits me fine. Also, quality compared to high quality and the hit is very large.

How do you compare that to your Radeon? In term of performance (what were your settings) and quality? Thanks for the feedback!
