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.

Turning on AA and AF, it comes as no surprise that Metro: Last Light numbers plummet.

Looking at GRID Autosport, you can see that we're still able to achieve a solid average FPS with AA and AF on. Moving to 2560 x 1600 is just too much for the card, as the 44 FPS average is just too low.

Just like Metro: Last Light, as soon as we turn on AA and AF here, the FPS plummets to unplayable levels.
