AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB Reference Video Card Review - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

We look at the big brother to the new AMD Radeon HD 7800 series, the HD 7870, and see if it can impress like the smaller HD 7850.

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.

We get some nice gains across the board when we turn AA and AF on, but Aliens vs. Predator continues to be a struggle for so many cards. Mafia II on the other hand sees a 10 FPS boost which takes us from a 55 FPS average on the HD 7850 to 65 FPS on the HD 7870. FarCry 2 continues to offer us playable numbers with just a bit more breathing room being offered here.
