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 sees the ASUS GTX 980 4GB STRIX OC separate itself by a decent chunk when compared to the other setups here. However, overall, you can see the FPS aren't anywhere near where they need to be for the game to be playable.

With AA and AF enabled, GRID Autosport sees the ASUS GTX 980 4GB STRIX OC get some extremely solid FPS. Looking above, you can see at 1920 x 1200 we've got enough power to hit an average that jumps into the 100s, while at the higher 2560 x 1600 resolution, we see an average that jumps into the 80s.

Sleeping Dogs numbers look good with AA and AF enabled, and once again we see a solid increase in performance from the ASUS GTX 980 4GB STRIX OC in comparison to our other two cards. While it's not quite enough to get playable numbers at 2560 x 1600, you can see at 1920 x 1200 we've got enough power to take our average out of the 60 FPS range into the 70 FPS range.
