MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning 3GB 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 turned on, of course this high-end single GPU video card has no problems dealing Far Cry 2.




As strong as we've seen the overclocked GTX 780 Lighting from MSI perform so far, you can see as soon as we crank up the AA and AF under Metro Last Light, the card really comes to its knees at both resolutions.




Turning on AA and AF under Just Cause 2 isn't a problem for our overclocked MSI GTX 780 Lightning, with some strong FPS being seen at both resolutions.




Finishing up with Sleeping Dogs, you can see that we manage to sneak in 62 FPS at 1920 x 1200 with AA and AF turned on. You can see that moving to 2560 x 1600, though, the 37 FPS average that we have here isn't going to be much fun.
