MSI Radeon R9 270 2GB Gaming OC Video Card Review - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

MSI Radeon R9 270 2GB Gaming OC Video Card Review

We take a look at our second R9 270. This time from MSI with an out of the box overclock. Let's see how it goes.

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.

Turning on AA and AF, it comes as no surprise that the overclock does little, and overall performance is just way too low.

Just Cause 2 manages to see a little bit of positive movement and our 1920 x 1200 average moves from 67 FPS to 69 FPS. We see an extra FPS at 2560 x 1050, but overall the FPS at 44 is just too low.

Sleeping Dogs sees an extra FPS at both resolutions, but overall the FPS is again just way too low for the game to be playable under these settings.
