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 some nice performance gains from the CrossFire setup, it's not enough overall. The setup falls short at this level of detail.

GRID Autosport FPS skyrockets in both resolutions, with 1920 x 1200 not being an issue, and 2560 x 1600 looking good with a 54 FPS average. With that said, it's still a little short of where we want to be. Although, it does have a good jump on the R9 280 3GB OC.

While Sleeping Dogs sees some great gains, the overall performance just isn't where it needs to be at both resolutions.
