Default Re: NVIDIA says it will win back performance leadership this year

One more suggestion Chris, I'd ask you to pass on to nvidia.

Some older games don't like the combined 32xS mode (or anything with an 8x MSAA component), example; Severance: Blade of Darkness. However, they work fine with 16xS.

I'd suggest the creation of a coverage sample based combined AA mode, so that instead of 2x2 SSAA + 8x MSAA you would have 2x2 SSAA + 8x CSAA or 2x2 SSAA + 16x CSAA.

Hopefully the older games would see the CSAA as 4x MSAA (all CSAA modes are based on 4x MSAA + coverage samples).
