While the 2xAA setting killed the mid-range, it was expected that taking it a notch up to 4xAA would only make the situation worse, and it did.
Now even the Radeon X1950XT struggled to deliver playable performance at 1680x1050 while it did manage to produce acceptable rates at 1440x900. Even the Radeon HD 2900XT dipped down into the mid-40s at 1920x1200, rendering an average of 45fps. The GeForce 8800 series remained strong with the GTS producing 56fps at 1920x1200 and the GTX rendered some impressive 73fps.
