Couple things...

First off it is clear that in a couple tests Nvidia drivers are *Clearly* not actually enableing FSAA or AF. Or doesnt anyone else think its strange when scores regardless of settings *Never Change*. I have noticed this issue in a few reviews now. Odd thing is the reviewers just hapily give Nvidia the win and completely ignore the evidence of foul play.

Secondly...

And really really really bothersome....

Use Freaking 8x AF. I am really tired of seeing the 5900U getting to use 4x AF all the time in becnhmarks. This is obviously something that Nvidia is pushing behind the scenes with some propaganda to justify it.

i run 8x AF on every thing I run no matter what. 8x AF has virtually no performance hit.

here's the meaning of AF (and not a daft question) :D

Anisotropic Filtering: An advanced texture-filtering technique that improves image quality for scenes with objects that extend from the foreground deep into the background. For example, a road that extends to the horizon will look better with anisotropic filtering

Ansiotrophic filtering. Next image improvement up from Bilinear and trilinear texture filtering.

Anisotropic filtering.

It makes textures pretty.
