Test Drive Unlimited confirmed the very strong impression the Radeon HD 4870 made with Call of Duty 4. Not only was it slightly ahead of the GTX 260 at all resolutions, but it finished a mere hair away from the GTX 280 at 1920*1200 + antialiasing and even beat the Nvidia card at 2560*1600 + antialiasing (and was playable at that resolution)! This was an impressive performance, especially since the 4870 only has half the onboard memory. Antialiasing seems to have made a comeback with the Radeon 4800 series!
