Anti Aliasing (32xCSAA) performance
We could not leave out at least one specific test where we show you AA performance specifically done at 32x Anti-Aliasing. We explained that what NVIDIA is doing with the 32x CSAA mode is relatively simple to manage, they take eight color samples and then 24 coverage samples to define your AA pixel color value. The method was actually already introduced on G80 and GT200 if my memory serves me right, but has been improved. The GT200 however managed 16xCSAA with eight color samples and eight coverage samples.
Now we load up Battlefield Bad Company 2 again and try out three sample patterns, 8x, 16x and 32xAA.
Have a look at the results, as quite honestly I was surprised by the low impact the new AA mode has on performance, check it out:
The results above are the GeForce GTX 470. Now as you can see, if we take 1920x1200 as a reference, the difference in-between a jump from 8xAA towards 32xAA is only ~15%
And here, the GeForce GTX 480. Anyway, fool around with it if you get a chance to do so. Results obviously can differ per game.
Today a review the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX edition. The Superclocked model comes with a nice factory tweak and that all new Sleeve bearing fan based ACX cooler. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3x OC review
We test and review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3x OC edition. The graphics card comes witha factory overclock and the new WindForce 3X 2 Slot 450W fan sink with Triangle Cool fans, as they like to cool it. That would be three silent 80mm fans. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
GeForce GTX 780 SLI and Multi monitor review
We review the GeForce GTX 780 SLI and also do a SurroundView session with three monitors. The boards used are reference from NVIDIA. Over the next few pages we'll tell you a bit about multi-GPU gaming, the challenges, the requirements and of course a nice tasty benchmark session with the latest games. We'll have a peek at temperatures and power consumption of the GeForce GTX Titan cards in 2-way SLI mode to monitor it's generated performance.
GeForce GTX 780 review
We test and review the GeForce GTX 780. The GeForce GTX 780 is NVIDIAs all new high-end graphics card based in their Flagship product, the GTX Titan. This means it is based on the GK110 GPU and has an whopping 7.1 Billion transistors. That makes it a nice chunk faster opposed to the GeForce GTX 680 GPU. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
