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.
Some nice gains against the reference GTX 770 2GB are seen, but as you'd expect, the performance numbers are overall very good with some very playable numbers being seen.
While we do see about a 10% increase over the MSI GTX 770 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming, a 36 FPS and 22 FPS average is just way too low to make Metro Last Light playable with these settings.
Firing up Just Cause 2 we again see the benefit of overclocking as at 2560 x 1600 the other GTX 770s sit in the 50 FPS range, while the MSI GTX 770 2GB Lightning when overclocked manages to score a strong 65 FPS.
While Sleeping Dogs sees some nice performance gains, the numbers overall are still too low with 54 FPS being seen at 1920 x 1200, and much lower being seen at 2560 x 1600.
