No, that is not what I wrote. You need to re-read what I wrote more carefully. AA actually improves the results for Nvidia because they get to use the 16 extra ROPs that are otherwise under-utilized.

And being within 10 feet of a 7970 might cause you to spontaneously burst into flame. I have no actual evidence of this, but it is much safer to not take that chance.

They don't drop fillrate when AA is used, they actually gain effective fillrate.
