High Quality AA and AF Testing
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 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.
While we do see the MSI GTX 780 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC outperform our other cards here, you can see with AA and AF on that we're falling short of the 60 FPS number we need.
Unlike Metro Last Light, you can see that we've got strong, playable FPS here at both resolutions. As for how the MSI GTX 780 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC stacks up against the competition, you can see that we're going a little back and forth with the top AMD offerings.
The 68 FPS the overclocked MSI GTX 780 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC sees here is a solid gain over the 63 FPS that the next closest card sees at 1920 x 1200. When just scraping into the 60 FPS mark, the extra breathing room is always appreciated.
Of course, just scraping in at 1920 x 1200 means that 2560 x 1600 isn't an option as our setups plummet to 40 FPS and lower.
