High Quality AA and AF

Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards weren't struggling before they will start to now.

Mafia II


While we no doubt see a good increase, you can see that we're struggling to get that 60 FPS average we need; it seems AA is out for the most part when it comes to Mafia 2 and the GTX 460.

Aliens vs. Predator


From a percentage point of view the extra speed on offer from the ECS Black GTX 460 is impressive. Unfortunately we're way below the 60 FPS average we need. Again it seems AA is out in this case.

Street Fighter IV


Fortunately the not as intensive Street Fighter IV doesn't have the same issues as above with some ultra smooth game play with the in-game settings maxed out.

Far Cry 2


While not quite as high as Street Fighter IV, the numbers here are where they need to be and while at 765MHz we're over the 30 FPS minimum, the card at 930MHz just gives us even more breathing room which is something always appreciated.
