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.




Looking above, you can see that both setups give nearly identical numbers, but when it comes to turning on AA and AF, the overall FPS are just too low.




Looking at GRID Autosport, you can see that while the R9 290X 4GB does manage to sneak slightly ahead at both resolutions, both setups manage to offer playable FPS at over 60 at both resolutions.




With AA and AF on, we again see nearly identical numbers from both setups. When it comes to playability, though, you can see that 1920 x 1200 numbers are solid, with a 64 FPS average shown by both cards. However, 2560 x 1600 isn't an option, as we see numbers only in the high 30s.
