    Downloaded it, tried it, SC2 now kicks the snot out of my Radeon HD 2400. My Radeon HD 4870 runs it like a champ. Wish I had a 5xxx series... *sigh*

    Props to the ATI team at AMD, good job.

  • Huh ?
    Didn't the ATI CC or the Nvidia Control Panel already have the ability to add anti aliasing to ANY Direct3D application ? I always do that on old apps in nvidia control panel...

    Doesn't always work well. Nvidia has a similar thing that I tried and it didn't work. Had to wait for latest drivers to actually support the game and even then they're not tweaked for it.
