NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 4GB Video Cards in SLI & Overclocked

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.




Metro: Last Light sees some awesome performance gains. Looking above, you can see the strong overclock on our SLI setup helps push our 2560 x 1600 number to a solid 60 FPS average. 60 FPS is a number that no other setup manages to achieve here, and it's a number that most other setups struggle to hit at the lower 1920 x 1200 resolution.




With AA and AF on, you can see a slight performance increase under GRID Autosport, nothing too major, though. With that said, you can see performance is strong at both resolutions with the overclocked SLI setup managing to score a solid 103 FPS average.




Finishing up our AA and AF testing, Sleeping Dogs' performance is very solid at both resolutions, with a nice little performance boost over our stock clock cards. We also see a more solid separation in performance against the AMD R9 295X2 8GB that lags behind.
