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 unplayable FPS, and the real power houses continue to break that 60 FPS mark we always aim for to provide a smooth gaming experience.

With AA and AF on, you can see that the Sapphire doesn't see any performance increase. In the end, though, the performance on a whole is just way too low that no overclock would bring us to playable levels.

Just Cause 2 sees a nice little performance boost, and you can see our overclocked Sapphire R9 270 Dual X 2GB OC manages to move into the 70 FPS range. The 46 FPS average at 2560 x 1600, though, is just still too low.

While Sleeping Dogs sees an extra FPS at both resolutions, the numbers on a whole are just way too low.
