Now i heard these card support up x24 AA but ive only seen reviewers use x4 i was wondering any 2900XT/3870/3850 owners out there have tried x24 CSAA in anygames? how is it different from Nvida's 8800's 16xQ AA?
Also how much of a performance hit you take if you do put on x24 CSAA O_o my guess would be the whole game!
Oh and i thought that the more AA AF there was, the lesser the gap between Radeon and Nvidia it got.
That all the benchies was at standard 4AA 16AF and at those settings Nvidia was on top but when they cranked the settings up Radeon showed real good performance.
Can anyone verify this?
So did I, but someone mentioned it in a thread in the 3xxx's defense.
That at the usual settings 4AA 16AF Nvidia wins clearly but at 8AA the Radeons was better...
But as i said, i need it verified, never seen any evidence for it.
This is an entirely moot topic. 24x AA is overkill for any game, and only games over around two or three years old could possibly be playable at that level. Most people can't tell much of a difference past 4x AA, myself included, and anyone who says 16x AA is noticeably better than 8x AA is probably just in their head.
