High Quality AA and AF Testing
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.
While we see the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC is slightly faster than the R9 270X 2GB, the overall FPS are just way too low on all our setups here.
Just Cause 2 sees the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC perform well at 1920 x 1200 when AA and AF is turned on. Unlike the R9 280X 3GB, though, it's not able to offer us playable FPS at the higher 2560 x 1600 resolution.
Sleeping Dogs sees the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC struggle at both resolutions. You can see almost nothing between the two models here with just a few FPS being seen at 1920 x 1200 and the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC coming an FPS behind at the higher 2560 x 1600 option.
