AMD Catalyst 12.11 Windows 7 Driver Analysis

Manufacturer: AMD

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.

We see a slightly boost in performance and it's nice to see our HD 7870 minimum jump to over 30 FPS at the highest resolution.

Metro 2033 sees some nice performance gains across the board, but continues to remain unplayable in most tests. We do see that the HD 7970 GHz Edition gets a bit more breathing room at 1920 x 1200, though, as it hits a strong 70 FPS with AA and AF turned on.

Just Cause 2 sees some great games with the HD 7870 now giving us playable FPS at 1920 x 1200, and the HD 7970 GHz breaking the 60 FPS barrier at 2560 x 1600. These are exactly the kind of gains we love to see.

Sleeping Dogs sees a little bit of movement, but across the board the FPS is below 60.
