putting dx11 mode on got alot more fps (not that i needed it anyway)
You are also disabling features, such as crisp edging for water, while enabling others. I think the FPS boost comes from the features being disabled in DX11 mode, not from running DX11. I could be wrong though.

It's definately not a placebo effect. What AA does is it takes the edge pixel of an object and melds it with the surrounding colors. This gives the effect of a smoother edge to the surface as it's harder to disinguish the edge because it is a similiar color to the surrounding pixels. It does this several ways such as CSAA, MSAA, etc.Edited by Shrimpykins - 1/4/11 at 10:22am
