I have a BFG 6800GT and using coolbits 2 to overclock. I heard theres a way to enable 16x AA and 16x AF. Can someone tell me the hack. Sorry, I did a search and it came up nothing.

I thought you could only use 8x AA?

1700+ T-Bred @ 2.48 ghz (12 x 207 @ 1.8V)
Thermalright SP-97 w/ Thermaltake Smartfan II


Hmmmmm, those numbers dont add up for me, i know the 1700+ is a great overclocker but......that speed on air cooling, nah.

hmm..this is a 0310WPMW core. It was well known that these chips can get to 2.5 ghz +. Also, I have a SP-97 with a smart fan that is on high with a side fan blowing fresh air over the heatsink. This is arguably the best air cooling solution available and performs better than many other medium range WATER cooling.

Nvidia cards have a lot of hidden FSAA modes. Those can be enabled by using tweaking programs like rivatuner and Atuner.

Why doesn't anyone look at this sticky. :)

ATuner lets you use 16xAA (and many other modes). Ive never gotten Riva Tuner to show them all, plus Atuner is a much simpler\faster program for changing options like these on the fly.

Ill post a link to download the newest ATuner when i find it...

EDIT: Here it is:

Notice the version number includes the highest Nvidia driver version supported by the program (right now its 61.77). It usually works with higher versions, but i guess its possible for some things to not function correctly if you are using any of the brand new beta drivers.

It looks like 16FSAA would be real slow ,and I have seen lots of xp1700 and Xp1800 that would do that fast on air ,I think that is one of the reasons AMD started locking them because they were loseing money.

Depends on the game and resolution. I can play UT2k4 at 1024x768, 16xSFSAA, 16xAF, and get about 40 fps. Of course I usually play at 1600x1200, 4xAA, 16xAF, and get about 50 fps.. ;)

I put my card at 16x FSAA and as soon as I finish backing up stuff on DVD here I'm gonna fire up Doom 3 and see how terrible the performance is. Should be fun. :)

Rivatuner changed, I updated my Investigation recently so all the AA modes can be enabled. Prior they werent all showing up due to a change in the "Required" hardware mode.

Just remove those required_modes, and you'll be fine. or just cut and paste the modes out of my investigation, should give you all of them.

Oh. My. God.

16x FSAA destroyed my computer.
