Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB TOXIC Video Cards in CrossFire

High Quality AA and AF



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 an 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.




Metro: Last Light sees a boost with the second card, but the intensity of this benchmark when AA and AF is turned on is just too much for the setup, and you can see our FPS are a good chunk below that 60 FPS number we need at both resolutions. The only setup able to pull of playable FPS here is the 6GB wielding GTX TITAN that has always done extremely well under this benchmark.




Just Cause 2 doesn't have the same issue as Metro: Last Light. You can see great performance at both resolutions, and numbers that are ahead of all the single GPU setups.




While not quite as intensive as Metro: Last Light you can see even the Sapphire R9 270X 2GB TOXIC CrossFire setup falls short of that 60 FPS number we need at the higher resolution. Fortunately, at 1920 x 1200 you can see a strong 74 FPS.
