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 that performance just isn't where it needs to be under Metro Last Light.

Just Cause 2 sees some good numbers at both resolutions with a slight boost being seen over the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB TOXIC. More importantly, though, is the fact that we've got playable FPS at both resolutions.

Sleeping Dogs sees a slight boost in performance, but you can see that it's note quite enough with only 54 FPS being seen at 1920 x 1200. Falling short here of course means that 2560 x 1600 isn't an option with 32 FPS being seen.
