GIGABYTE Radeon R9 280 WINDFORCE 3GB OC Video Card Review

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, it comes as no surprise that Metro Last Light sees the GIGABYTE R9 280 WINDFORCE 3GB OC fall to its knees.




With AA and AF on, we can see that GRID Autosport manages to see the GIGABYTE R9 280 WINDFORCE 3GB OC pull out a playable 64 FPS average at 1920x1200. At 2560x1600, performance is just too low.




Just like Metro Last Light, with AA and AF on, we see these midrange offerings not get the FPS we need at either resolution.
