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.
With AA and AF on, you can see at both resolutions that the new Sapphire R9 280X 3GB TOXIC has no problems getting playable FPS.
Looking above, you can see as soon as we turn AA and AF on, we're just not able to get the FPS we need for Metro Last Light to be playable.
Just Cause 2 performance at both resolutions is strong and ahead of the GTX 770 2GB here. More importantly, though, the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB TOXIC manages to bring us playable FPS at 2560 x 1600 with AA and AF turned on, thanks to the 65 FPS average.
While the numbers here for the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB TOXIC are strong against the competition, at both resolutions, you can see we do fall shy of that 60 FPS number we want at both resolutions for solid gameplay.
