MSI GTX780 Lightning 3GB Graphics Card Review

Grid 2 is the sequel to the racing video game Race Driver: Grid.  It was developed and published by Codemasters. The game includes numerous real world locations such as Paris, numerous United States locations, and many more, and also includes motor vehicles spanning four decades. In addition, it includes a new handling system that developer Codemasters has dubbed ‘TrueFeel’, which aims to hit a sweet spot between realism and accessibility.

We have aimed in this review to show results with the highest image quality settings possible. GRID 2 uses different anti aliasing rendering methods between Nvidia and AMD hardware once the settings go above the standard 8x MSAA option.

We test both GTX Titan and GTX780 Lightning with 16x QCSAA settings. The Sapphire HD7970 6GB Toxic is tested with 8f16x EQAA. This means that the Sapphire HD7970 6GB Toxic Edition results are not directly comparable.
