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.

Looking at Metro Last Light, you can see that the MSI R9 280X 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC is bringing itself a 10 percent increase over the XFX version of the card. Like all our other cards here, though, you can see we fall well and truly short of the FPS we need.

The MSI R9 280X 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC sees a nice performance boost at both resolutions. The 2560 x 1600 performance, though, is the one that really interests us as we move from the 61 FPS average on the XFX card to a solid 68 FPS.

 

While both are over that 60 FPS number we're on the hunt for, the extra 7 FPS really gives us some extra breathing room, which is something that is always appreciated when just getting into the 60 FPS range.
