So, little teaser with BF3... Gained 9% on the min FPS, and 4% on AVG in BF3. Not much perf increase, but it is in line with the 5% stated on the driver notes so far. Plus, having SSAA in BF3 = awesome IQ.

Unigine

7970, 11.12
FPS: 75.7

7970, 11.12 RC11

u got any screenshots with the new aa in action? the perfermance hit on min seems so minimal..but i guess since ure doing tri fire..we should divide by 3 to get single gpu?...

one thing about AA in bf3...the fxaa or what/eva is really ugly in the distance....all blurry...but mxaa takes a huge toll on ati..
