[quote]We didn’t test the “eye candy” mode for two reasons. First, it’s only the ATI Radeon X1000 family that allows using FSAA and HDR simultaneously, so there would be no comparisons to make. And second, in tomorrow’s games the Radeon X1800 XT and even the Radeon X1900 XTX are going to be too low-performing to deliver a playable frame rate in high enough resolutions with enabled HDR and full-screen antialiasing.[/quote]

The latter is a strange conclusion, at least for the X1900XTX.

Enabling 4xAA@1280x1024 in the SM3.0/HDR gives a 27% perfomance hit on my XTX, which is still FASTER than a X1800XT or 7800GTX/256 without AA.
