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.

Looking at AA and AF performance we can again see a nice boost in performance under all our games.

 

While the gains aren't so much needed under Mafia II and Far Cry II, the extra FPS under Aliens vs. Predator is appreciated as we move a little further away from that 60 FPS mark helping us achieve a bit more breathing room to provide a really good gaming experience.
