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.

While we've got a performance boost across all our games here we can see the HD 7870 continues to struggle under Aliens vs. Predator. Mafia II and FarCry 2 performance on the other hand is strong as we see our performance move further away and further away from that 60 FPS average.
