ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP 2GB Video Card Review - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP 2GB Video Card Review

It's been a while since we've looked at an ASUS video card, and we get stuck back into it today with the R9 270X DirectCU II TOP 3GB. (TPE:2357)

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, it comes as no surprise that Metro: Last Light numbers are extremely low.

Just Cause 2 sees a bit of movement at both resolutions, and we manage to see some really good numbers out of the ASUS R9 270X DirectCU II TOP 2GB at 1920 x 1200. 2560 x 1600 though, as you'd expect, is just too tough for the card.

Just like Metro: Last Light, the intensity of Sleeping Dogs when AA and AF are turned on is simply too much.
