Antialiasing Performance

We used the same benchmark we used in our anisotropic filtering tests, but this time around we're using it to measure AA performance.

You can see that the move to a multisampling AA algorithm helped ATI considerably, even their 6X AA mode is now effectively a useable option in a lot of games.
