Yeah it's the transparency AA. Multisampling is the "performance" one and Supersampling is the "quality" one. By the way I'm just now learning about this feature and it's incredibly awesome.

How do I switch to the new AA modes guy's? Is it the transparancy AA setting? I will bench right now if it is
Jacob, are you using the 77.50 or the official 77.72 Nvidia released today?
Transparency and gamma corrested AA have to be turned on in the advanced setting.

Default Re: My Dual 7800 GTX's

Just curious, is there an explanation of what transparency AA is exactly? I dont quite understand what the transparency part is referring to. Does it have to do with AA on sprites with transparent background (like the grass in Battlefield 2)? Or does it have more to do with the quality of AA lines?

True, that's what they say, but I can't believe they're abandoning the AGP market to ATI.

BTW, geia sou patrida.

In games that use flat surfaces with "masked" textures (like chain-link fences in Half-Life 2, or leaves on trees in World of Warcraft), standard multisampling AA does not improve aliasing because it only affects polygon edges. Transparency AA looks for "masked" textures and selectively anti-aliases the texture itself. Previously the only way to anti-alias textures was to turn on supersampling (8xS) which as we all know destroys performance (for those of us without SLI). So basically it's a brilliant solution that greatly improves image quality without killing performance.

You can only use 16xAA in a SLI setup AFAIK.

From what I have read, my understanding is it has to do with what you said first, sprites!
