MSI GEFORCE GTX 670 Power Edition 2GB Overclocked Video Card Review

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.




With AA and AF on we can see that we've got some strong numbers out of Mafia II at 1920 x 1200, but fall shy of that 60 FPS number at the 2560 x 1600 resolution like all of the other video cards here.




Unlike Mafia II we can see across the board the only video card that is able to break the 60 FPS mark is the HD 7970 at 1920 x 1200. Every other result from our line up sees we're under that 60 FPS number that we want to be at for a smooth gaming experience.




Far Cry 2 numbers with AA and AF on are strong and we manage to get over that 30 FPS minimum at 2560 x 1600 with our overclocked GTX 670 Power Edition video card here from MSI.




Like Mafia II we can see some strong performance at 1920 x 1200 here, but when we move to 2560 x 1600, like all the other video cards, we're below that 60 FPS average that we want to be at for our game to be considered playable.




Finally we finish off with Just Cause 2 and we see some great performance at 1920 x 1200, but again at 2560 x 1600, we fall below that 60 FPS average, like all of the other video cards here. Mind you we're only 2 FPS from it which lines us up with the pre-overclocked GTX 680 again.
