AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB Reference Video Cards in CrossFire - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

We pair the brand new AMD Radeon HD 7870 up with a second video card and see how CrossFire performance is on the new model.

High Quality AA and AF

 

 

While we test all our games with maximum in-game settings, turning on Anti-Aliasing (AA) and Antistrophic Filtering (AF) helps take the intensity of our testing to another level.

 

Here we see video cards go from playable FPS to an unplayable FPS and the real power houses continue to help break that 60 FPS mark we always aim for to provide a smooth gaming experience.

On a single card setup you can see that under something a bit less intensive like FarCry 2 and Mafia II we could get the FPS we wanted on a single HD 7870. Moving to something more intensive like Aliens vs. Predator saw the single card setup fall over.

 

Throw the second card into the mix, get 100% gains, and as you can see above we've got an awesome 87 FPS average.
