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 some nice gains again under the AA and AF tests and the strongest is seen under Far Cry 2 with a nice jump in the minimum.

 

The most important jump, though, comes under Aliens vs. Predator, as we see a move from 58 FPS on the launch driver to 63 FPS on the new WHQL 12.2 driver.
