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 help break that 60 FPS mark we always aim for to provide a smooth gaming experience.
As powerful as the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB is, you can see above that we still fall short of the 60 FPS average we need at the highest resolution. While we manage to sit ahead of our other setups here, Metro Last Light with AA and AF continues to put the hurt on high-end video card setups.
Just Cause 2 doesn't run into the same problem, though. You can see fantastic numbers at both resolutions and numbers that sit ahead of our other setups here.
Like Metro Last Light, Sleeping Dogs with AA and AF on is extremely intensive. Fortunately, though, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB is able to offer us excellent FPS at both resolutions, which sees an extremely playable 72 FPS at 2560 x 1600.
