At 1920 x 1200 with Medium Quality settings selected, the Alienware managed a mere 27fps compared to 51.1fps from the Mesh, but with anti-aliasing turned on, the Alienware frame rate dived to 4fps. By contrast, the Mesh was hardly affected by AA and plugged along at 45.3fps.

It was a similar story with Crysis' Very High Quality settings enabled. Without anti-aliasing, as the Alienware only ran at 7.3fps while the Mesh achieved 19fps. We turned on AA, and the Alienware crashlanded somewhere in New Mexico while the Mesh continued to hover, albeit at a barely playable framerate.
