I have recently upgraded from my 290X to an Asus GTX 1080Ti Founders Edition. I am experiencing a lot of aliasing in all of my games, something I never experienced when using my 290X. Even with AA turned completely off in both game and control panels, the 290X never had such insane amounts of aliasing like the 1080Ti does. It is extremely noticeable and annoying as hell. As we all know having to use MSAA times 4, 6 or 8 absolutely tanks performance and kills the framerate even on a 1080Ti. With my 290X I barely had to use AA because of how tolerable the amount of aliasing was, unlike it is now with the new card.
Screen tearing everywhere, games, YouTube and even when watching video files stored on the computer regardless of video software used (VLC, Windows Media Player etc.). Frames are unsynced and tearing is present to the extent to where it is really freaking annoying and is disturbing the hell out of me. I simply cannot watch nor play anything because of these issues.
Applying changes in the control panel doesnt change anything for the better. Regardless of v-sync types or let 3D application decide settings, there is still awful aliasing in games and tearing pretty much everywhere to the extent where it is unbearable.
This is absolutely not what I was expecting when transitioning from AMD to Nvidia and spending $870 on a new GPU.
before you ask everyone's favourite question about drivers. Yes, I did uninstall the AMD drivers and I did that using the AMD cleanup utility, additionally I also deleted everything AMD drivers related in the registry entries. I have installed the latest Nvidia drivers namely the 381.65.
I am also not getting the kind of performance I was expecting. There is a somewhat noticeable increase in performance but it is not on par with the benchmarks which are posted on the net.
Any help or input is greatly appreciated.
