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.

Turning on AA and AF we've got some awesome performance again from the new card. You can see under Mafia II that performance for the GTX 680 is ahead of the HD 7970 by a couple of FPS and just offering us really playable numbers across the board.

Moving into Aliens vs. Predator we can see that we fall behind the HD 7970 in this instance which is consistent with our non AA and AF tests under Aliens vs. Predator. More importantly we can see that performance is below that 60 FPS mark.

Finally we finish up with Far Cry 2 and you can see we've got no issue with playable FPS which again sees the GTX 680 come out ahead of the HD 7970.
