I thought morphological AA was supposed to help performance?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I tried out the option thinking it would give me more fps in games, but all it does is make the games very chopping and have horrible screen tearing. I've noticed this in all games, I'll at least lose 15 fps with morphological anti aliasing compared to application applied AA. Does anyone know why this would be? I'm using 11.2 drivers if that helps

I tried it today to see if it would improve performance but the games just ended up looking terrible

+ no performance increase

Found this under help in CCC:

Code:
Morphological filtering involves the use of post-processing anti-aliasing filters to enhance the image quality of 3D applications. By enabling morphological filtering, you can further smooth the look of jagged edges in games and other 3D applications
So no way it´s supposed to help performance Rather hurt it.

I´m not sure, but if i have understood this right, then Morphological filtering is supposed to be used with Tessellation to enhance the image quality.
But i´m 100% ,sure and can´t find the site were i read it.

And since my tessellation control doesn't work i can´t try it out

It seems to make everything blurred and not smooth
Tried it in Battlefield BC2 and i will not recommend others to try it

Still haven't tried it in Rift yet.

BF and Rift are the only games play atm.

ah ok thanks. I thought I had read somewhere before that it was supposed to help performance by making it look like normal AA was being applied, but without as much stress on your system, and that was why everyone had been talking about it. I don't really see the point of it then considering it makes the game look worse and have worse framerates than normal. Are there any upsides to this feature?

EDIT: after reading this, it looks like there shouldn't be the performance impact i'm getting, as its supposed to be better than normal AA. So i'm not sure whats up with my system
