Far Cry

With AA/AF enabled and disabled, both cards struggle a bit once we invaded the camp on the Swamp level. Once the area was cleared of foes, the framerates improved drastically on without AA/AF, but less so with it enabled. There is a fair amount of foliage, and the therefore a lot of area to remove the jaggies.

Image Quality

Here we have a couple screenshots of AA/AF enabled and disabled at 1280x1024. As you can see, given the fast paced action, enabling these features is not really necessary, though the game is playable with AA/AF on. As mentioned earlier, it does bog down once multiple enemies appear, but that only happens with about 6 to 7 on screen shooting at you.

Despite the drop at the 45 second mark (got surprised by a couple villains), even at 4xAA/8xAF, Painkiller was quite playable, though the game did run more smoothly with those image enhancements disabled.

Image Quality

Painkiller is not as advanced as Doom 3 and even Far Cry when it comes to the game engine, and as a result, you can turn up the image quality and still get decent framerates. There were not any problems that we could see during gameplay, and the rendering of images seemed accurate.
