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.
Here we see a little bump in performance at both resolutions which are enough to put the video card ahead of the GTX 660 Ti Power Edition. Like all the other cards here, though, 2560 x 1600 numbers aren't playable.
Looking at the Aliens vs. Predator numbers we can see the new Sapphire HD 7950 Vapor-X OC with Boost is able to break the 60 FPS barrier at 1920 x 1200. 2560 x 1600 isn't an option, but you can see that the NVIDIA video cards struggle at both resolutions under this benchmark.
Far Cry 2 numbers at both resolutions are strong and you can see the Sapphire video card is able to break the 30 FPS minimum at 2560 x 1600 with no issue. On the other hand the GTX 660 Ti Power Edition isn't able to do this.
Looking at the Metro 2033 AA numbers you can see no change between the HD 7950 video cards at all at both resolutions. These numbers are still enough to be ahead of the GTX 660 Ti Power Edition, but at 1920 x 1200 it falls just below the 60 FPS number we want for a smooth gaming experience.
Finally Just Cause 2 performance shows a nice boost and gives us a lot more breathing room at 1920 x 1200. Compared to the GTX 660 Ti you can see that there is little difference as the GTX 660 Ti Power Edition also falls below 60 FPS at 2560 x 1600.
