Also, yes, the 5870 is "old" as in, it's at least one generation past. I'm sorry if that upsets you or something. It's still a great card though.
cause i happen to have everything maxed out in game. Yet you claim i dont. Obviously you dont know what you are talking about.
Its a known fact that in game Rift AA is super sample, which makes your card render the image at a higher res and then resamples it down. Which puts extreme strain on your video card, which is why people running 8x AA in game are seeing massive slow down.
SO i do suggest before you go out throwing claims about how your awesome rig cant max it, therefore mine cannot, perhaps you should do some searching first.
Ill wait until Rift offers MSAA, or ATI releases new drivers allowing for in game AA to be forced without bugs.Edited by Vhati - 3/1/11 at 8:39am
