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.
Mafia II performance is really strong and you can see the Sapphire HD 7970 GHz Edition TOXIC manages to be the only video card that breaks the 60 FPS barrier at 2560 x 1600.
Unfortunately we don't have the same success at 2560 x 1600 under Aliens vs. Predator. The TOXIC does manage to come out ahead of everything else, though, and the only other card to break the 70 FPS mark is the GHz Edition reference clocked card.
Far Cry 2 performance is very strong as you'd expect and you can see we've got very playable FPS at both resolutions, which is exactly what we love to see.
We can see all our cards perform strong under Metro 2033 when it comes to 1920 x 1200. Moving to 2560 x 1600, though, we see everything struggle and while we do see a nice boost on our Sapphire HD 7970 GHz Edition TOXIC card, it's not quite enough to provide what we consider a solid gaming experience.
Just Cause 2 numbers look awesome and you can see the Sapphire HD 7970 GHz Edition TOXIC card is the only one that's able to break the 60 FPS mark. Even if it's just by a single FPS, it's ultimately all we need.
