Arkham City AA Setting?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I had a question about Arkham City's Anti-Aliasing settings/. I have GTX 480's in SLI and there are a ton of different Anti-Aliasing settings. I don't understand the difference between all of them and which would be best. I initially just went to the maxed out one and even though I can get playable frame rates, it doesn't feel as smooth as I'd like with everything maxed out. Which is the best AA setting?

FXAA is a type of AA proprietary to NVIDIA, it's a very efficient form of AA that calculates a medium within aliased (or jagged) pixels, sub-pixels and shaded areas in a single-pass sampling. MSAA simply renders the surface at a higher resolution through multi-sampling or "supersampling," in other words increasing the number of triangles to achieve a smoother surface and because of this requires a lot more processing power and memory. Both are great, but FXAA has the least performance hit on your GPU. I don't recommend super high MSAA (like 8x) unless you're running GTX 580s in SLI or something, as you will be sacrificing a lot of horsepower just to the AA alone. FXAA is a great alternative, and it's a hell of a lot better than MLAA in my opinion.

What about CSAA 8X, 16X, 16XQ and 32X(Which is what I'm using right now)? Is this better or worse than MSAA and FXAA?
