The NV30 looks perfect and has a good lead only with the anisotropy and AA. 

RightMark 3D



A sad picture.. Again we can see that by pushing together the shaders from ATI and NVIDIA we confirm the results of our synthetic tests. 




This is the first game where the NV30's advantages are used entirely.
