High Quality AA and AF

 

Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards weren't struggling before they will start to now.

Cranking up the detail and turning on AA and AF, we can see some great performance from the card. We've got playable numbers in everything except Aliens vs. Predator which sees a very strong increase over the reference card, but the MATRIX still falls shy of that 60 FPS average we want. Still, we're right on the edge and moving to something like 2x AA instead of 4x AA should bring the numbers up to the level we want.
