NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 4GB Video Cards in SLI (Page 12)

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 that the AMD R9 295 X2 8GB and GTX 980 4GB SLI setup perform very closely to each other with the NVIDIA setup managing to just sneak out ahead. More importantly, though, while Metro Last Light might be getting on a bit in age, you can see at the highest resolution all setups here can't hit that 60 FPS number we want for a solid gaming experience.


GRID Autosport doesn't have the same issue and you can see our GTX 980 4GB SLI setup manages to get over 100 FPS at both resolutions when AA and AF is turned on.


Sleeping Dogs shows performance that is not only playable at both resolutions, but also numbers that are ahead of the AMD R9 295 X2 8GB. At the highest resolution, you're talking about gains of around 15%.
