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.




With Metro Last Light being an issue with no AA and AF, it comes as no surprise the FPS absolutely plummets here when it's turned on. You can see across the board not a single setup gets that 60 FPS average we're on the hunt for.




Turning on AA and AF, we can see that while the HIS R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Boost 2GB does fall short of the 60 FPS at both resolutions, the 58 FPS average at 1920 x 1200 is impressive.




Just like Metro Last Light, we see the FPS numbers plummet here too. It's not until we move to the R9 290 4GB that we see some playable numbers.
