They should make Caspian Border a fly through Benchmark Test. LOL
Turn off MSAA mode. When you have MSAA mode OFF and leaving Post Antialiasing = High. You are using FXAA.
FXAA > MSAA big time. You will get 20FPS more.
Antialiasing = OFF
Post Antialiasing = High (FXAA)
It is confusing that they did not write as FXAA or MLAA because NVIDIA and AMD has different term for them. They are both actually Post Antialising which is an overlay masked Antialiasing effect that gives better performance than MSAA. MSAA is very smooth but it eats the FPS quite terribly if the area has a lot of objects.
I get low 40FPS @ 2560 x 1440 Ultra + 4xMSAA
Turning it off it will gets me to 70FPS @ 2560 x 1440 Ultra + No MSAA + FXAA High
