HIS IceQ R9 290X iPower Hybrid iTurbo 4GB OC'ed Video Card Review - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

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.

Turning on AA and AF, you can see like all our other setups here, the heavily overclocked HIS IceQ R9 290X iPower Hybrid iTurbo 4GB falls short of the 60 FPS number we're on the hunt for at both resolutions. Saying that, looking above, you can see that our Hybrid R9 290X 4GB card from HIS is the only one able to break into the 50 FPS realm.

Looking above, you can see that while GRID Autosport manages to offer playable FPS at both resolutions, thanks to that FPS wall, there's little difference seen between our higher-end offerings at the lower resolution, and also little difference at the higher one, when comparing our two R9 290X 4GB cards.

Sleeping Dogs sees some great performance at 1920 x 1200 with a 5% lead over the other HIS R9 290X 4GB, which is also overclocked quite strongly. At the highest resolution, you can see like our other setups, we fall short of the playable 60 FPS number that we like to see.
