NVIDIA Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-Aliasing (MFAA) Performance on GTX 970


Far Cry 3

FarCry 3 is a popular first-person shooter developed by Ubisoft. Being released in December 2012 using the Dunia Engine 2, which is based on the CryEngine. There is no built-in benchmarking utility, so using one of the built-in missions we will attempt to keep it as similar across the tests. Setting the graphics quality to Ultra we begin the testing.



Running Far Cry 3 at 1920 x 1080, with MSAA set to 4x, we used the Ultra graphics setting to test the effects of MFAA.


MSAA 4x Enabled


MFAA Enabled


Benchmark Results: Far Cry 3 we received an 18% performance increase when MFAA was enabled. That’s not too bad for a simple driver update; it’s like getting an updated GPU.
