High Quality AA and AF

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 an 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.

Moving onto our higher end AA and AF tests we can see that we continue to get a nice little boost in performance.

Unfortunately while the boost isn't enough for us to get playable numbers under Aliens vs. Predator, we've got nice playable numbers under both Far Cry 2 and Mafia 2, which benefits the most from the overclock.
