    Re: AMD (ATI) Radeon HD 4850 and 4870: / FSX

    Please, please, please can we have FSX included as one of the games tests on new graphics cards. Tradition says FS has been CPU rather than GPU limited in the past, however that all seems to have changed with FSX. There is a big community of FS users, all hungry to know which GPU to buy next for the latest graphics performance demands in FSX.

    Re: AMD (ATI) Radeon HD 4850 and 4870: bloodying NVIDIA's profits

    Can I just say that I agree wholeheartedly with the games suggested so far, especially FSX. Those would give a really good, across the genres, comparison that absolutely everybody would get something out of, whatever their game preference.

    Re: AMD (ATI) Radeon HD 4850 and 4870: bloodying NVIDIA's profits

    I'm very surprised that you didnt include benchmarks for crysis with any AA turned on. As far as i read on most websites the new ATI range really shine with AA turned on.

    can you please fix the review to include this, otherwise what is the point of the article. who in their right minds are going to play with no AA ? - and your results are misleading in those terms.

    Anyway, my opinion of ATI is far better than it has been in a while, I am very impressed with these cards and especialy the price tag. I am upgrading in the next weeks and even tho i dont game much anymore, i will most probly invest into a HD4850, might get 2 of them for that low price

    The reason there's no AA is down to playable frame-rates.

    Adding it in to the already-poor engine reduces it, at times, to a crawl - it barely runs smoothly as it is.

    I see your point BUT i think a lot of people like to have AA on, even if they have to reduce the res and textures to play it. Thusly its a bit daft to have reviews without a comparison of how each card can handle the AA. I personally dont care but i have seen from other benchmarks and reviews that AA is something that the AMD cards can handle especially well and it would be nice to have seen the hexus benchies agree/counter as i genrally regard the hexus reviews higher than most other sites/zines.

    I'm pretty sure it will be because the games themselves are not very demanding to other recent games, and they will pretty much play on anything even if its been out for a few years or so.
