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.
Checking out Far Cry 2 performance, you can see even with AA and AF enabled, we continue to get very strong performance at both resolutions.
Metro manages to pull out a playable number at 1920 x 1200, but you can see when we move to 2560 x 1600, we do fall short. Against the competition you can see in this instance that the GTX 770 2GB is lagging behind the other setups.
Just Cause 2 puts out some great performance at 1920 x 1200, but just like Metro 2033, you can see we fall shy of the 60 FPS number we want for solid gameplay at the highest resolution.
Like under Metro 2033 again, you can see the GTX 770 falls a little behind the pack for the most part, with only the HD 7950 offering slightly less FPS at 2560 x 1600.
Across the board you can see none of our setups manage to bring in the 60 FPS number we want at either resolution here.
