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.

Checking out Metro Last Light with AA and AF turned on, you can see the MSI GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Gaming OC falls just behind the heavily overclocked R9 290X 4GB here, but ahead of the R9 290 4GB by a decent margin.

 

More importantly, though, none of our setups here are offering playable FPS at either resolution, with these settings enabled.

GRID Autosport sees some awesome performance and gaming at either resolution with 8x AA on isn't an issue for the MSI GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Gaming OC.

Sleeping Dogs sees the MSI GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Gaming OC line up with the R9 290 4GB at 1920 x 1200 with a solid, playable 66 FPS.

 

While moving to 2560 x 1600 sees a number that lines up with the heavily overclocked R9 290X 4GB, the 42 FPS average is too low for us to consider it playable.
