NVIDIA Control Panel Settings - CSAA and SSAA

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Below is a screenshot of my control panel settings, I'm using 64x CSAA and 16x SSAA and I can tell that it's forcing the games to use it, I can notice the fps difference. I'd like to ask for feed back about these settings and whether it is worth the performance sacrifice it comes with.
Just to point out, all games are still playable. Lowest FPS I'm getting on these setting is on, you guessed it, Crysis 3. I'm getting around 50FPS ultra everything. (Only have a 60Hz monitor so only really losing 10 frames)
So, is it worth it?

Update: I'm now not sure what's happening...
When I play BO 2 I see no noticeable performance hit and my GPU's are only working at 30-40%...
How do I tell if it is being to forced to each game?

Why do you run it if you can't tell whether you enjoy it more or not?

But regarding your question - screenshot with forced settings, save & exit, reload defaults for another screenshot of same scene -> compare.
And Call of Duty uses a super lightweight engine. You won't see your cards stressed by it. wink.gif Perhaps Vertical Synchronization is also on - stopping the cards from rendering over 60FPS.

I enjoy it more on Crysis 3, I can notice it there, it's just Black Ops 2 I can't tell. I'll try taking screenshots and compare, but FRAPS screenshots just look blurry :/
