VisionTek Radeon R9 280X 3GB Video Card Review - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

VisionTek Radeon R9 280X 3GB Video Card Review
Having just finished looking at the Radeon R7 260X 2GB from VisionTek, we today look at something a little higher-end. Let's see how it performs now.

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.

Cranking up the AA and AF, we can see that gaming under Metro: Last Light with these settings just isn't an option.

Just Cause 2 on the other hand, looks good and you can see we manage to get an even 60 FPS at 2560 x 1600 with AA and AF on. The GTX 770 2GB on the other hand, falls short of that 60 FPS number with 55 FPS being seen.

Moving back into something newer, you can see we fall short of playable numbers at both resolutions again when AA and AF comes into the picture. An issue is seen on a number of cards here.
