(not a bash, just being honest)
The 8xS mode is no longer useless since nvidia changed the multi- and supersampling ratio in the latest drivers. Performance is still lower than 4xMSAA (would be strange if it wasn't) but the new 8xS makes games actually playable and still offers texture supersampling.
