NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 3GB 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 it comes as no surprise that the performance continues to be strong under Far Cry 2 with the GTX 780. Compared to the AMD HD 7970 GHz Edition, you can see the GTX 780 sits ahead.




1920 x 1200 produces some excellent results here with an 89 FPS average. Moving to 2560 x 1600, though, you can see while we manage to stay ahead of the HD 7970 GHz Edition easily, we're still a little behind that 60 FPS number we're always on the hunt for to provide smooth gameplay.




Strong performance is seen at both resolutions here from the GTX 780. The 2560 x 1600 numbers look great, though, as you see the AMD HD 7970 GHz Edition just scrape in a 60 FPS average, while the GTX 780 manages to get a more solid 66 FPS result.




Sleeping Dogs is extremely intensive when we crank up the detail and you can see like every other video card here, we don't manage to pull a playable 60 FPS number in any situation.
