This is a detailed analysis of the different combinations of AA and Quality settings in Far Cry 2. The Eyefinity6 outperforms both the original 5870 and the 5970 at 8xAA. The problem is that no one really plays at that setting, and performance at that point is still not "playable." One thing to note is that the AA setting consistently has a higher impact on performance, rather than the quality (High, Very High, Ultra High) quality setting.

Hitting 60fps

In Far Cry 2, 60fps can be attained with 0xAA on Very High quality settings.
