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.
Starting with Mafia II we can see strong performance at 1920 x 1200 while 2560 x 1600 performance sees all video cards fall below that 60 FPS mark. The closest to it, though, is the Gainward offering with a 56 FPS average.
Aliens vs. Predator on the other hand struggles with playable numbers at both resolutions on these NVIDIA based video cards. On the other hand you can see the HD 7970 manages to sneak past that 60 FPS mark at 1920 x 1200.
As much as people say that Far Cry 2 isn't intensive today, you can see looking above that we're not all that far above that 30 FPS minimum at 2560 x 1600. None the less we're above it and we've got playable numbers at both resolutions here with AA and AF cranked right up.
While Metro 2033 manages to pull in playable numbers with AA and AF on at 1920 x 1200, you can see 2560 x 1600 numbers are just way too low to be able to offer a solid gaming experience.
Just Cause 2 sees good numbers at 1920 x 1200, but you can see moving to 2560 x 1600 we drop just below that 60 FPS average that we aim for.
