BTW, very nice job on the update

The Sample pattern I think is misleading. Nvidia cards cannot apply a additional multisample unless they take a pixel pass to do it. (notice the multisample isnt surrounding the texture sample)., In this case, I noticed the broken old 8xS doesnt do that either, It looks worse than 4xS..

I didnt take a screenshot of it because it just looks like 4x OGSS in actual games. I was under the same opinion that it might look better but it doesnt. Best suggestion is to compare it to 4xS.


P.S. I think it might be time to file a bug report if this is occuring on FX hardware.
