4K Showdown: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB vs. AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB

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 brings both setups to their knees, and you see just 14 and 15 FPS, respectively.

Just Cause 2 looks better than Metro Last Light, and you can see the R9 290X 4GB manages to pull out the win here. Overall, though, the average FPS is just too low, and both setups sit in the 40 FPS range.

Finishing off with Sleeping Dogs, we see a slight improvement over the Metro Last Light numbers. Overall, though, the numbers are just way too low for the game to be playable with these settings on both setups.
