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.
Mafia II sees some great gains and you can see at 2560 x 1600 the MSI GTX 680 Lightning when overclocked manages to break into that 60 FPS barrier. This is something that none of the other GTX 680s are able to do coming in between 50 and 56 FPS.
Aliens vs. Predator also sees the overclocked GTX 680 Lightning push the 1920 x 1200 number to just over 60 FPS while the other 600 series cards all sit below that number. At 2560 x 1600, though, we can see all cards struggle here to break that 60 FPS mark we aim for that provides a solid gaming experience.
Far Cry 2 sees some nice gains and the averages are really strong. Overall, though, the playable numbers under Far Cry 2 with these high-end cards (and overclocked) don't come as too much of a surprise.
Looking at Metro 2033 numbers we can see some nice gains at 1920 x 1200 which gives us some more breathing room. At 2560 x 1600, though, we can see across the board the numbers aren't playable on any of the cards.
Good gains again are seen under Just Cause 2, but you can see when overclocked, the GTX 680 Lightning is the only card that is able to break the 60 FPS barrier at 2560 x 1600.
