Supersampling is different, it is a downsampling method which, downsampling, is just like a virtual resolution. All programs report the same resolution - the virtual one. I'm not sure where the final image merge takes place - whether operated on rops, or shaders - but VSR is referred to have its own fpga circuit.
Yet, I advocate you shouldn't harness VSR on its own. You are advised to conjoin:
- SMAA to counterpose the "default" geometry artifacting,
- EQAA to blend the samples at a more gradual taper,
- MLAA to call the final verdict of all these SSAA, EQAA and SMAA sub-pixel calculations to produce just 1 pixel colour, duly bringing forth the full colour gamut inherent to your monitor.
Bright side of the deal is these bias & analytical antialiasing methods are practically free to connote.
