Nvidia FXAA?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
In the new drivers their is a option to enable FXAA. Should this be enabled and then disable AA post and differed in game. Is this just another form of AA?

From what I've read it's just a different form of AA. Though a far less costly version of FSAA since it doesn't have to down sample a larger rendered frame. You could enable both and see if you can see a difference?

Actually, FXAA should be enabled in the NVIDIA control panel, and any AA/AF options ingame should be left alone or turned off from my understanding.

You can see in their test they used the game's AA/AF and FXAA.
