    Default Not likely it wasn't working anywhere

    Old anisotropic filtering algorithms often failed to work at certain particular angles, and therefore when the hardware got faster vendors implemented better (but slower) algorithms which would work all the time instead of just 90% of the time.

    Sounds like exactly what happened here. The test was just designed to show off the weaknesses the old algorithms had.
