PreservedSwine is still being judged by the masses


Default Poor FSAA performance on my R8500...

..is what I expected, but not at all what I got.
Seriously, after hearing how poor FSAA performance was supposed to be on the R8500, I didn't even think I'd be able to play any current games with it.

How overstated! I can play BF 1942 just fine, albeit w/ 2xperformance FSAA, and it get rid of most of the jaggies just fine, all without losing that sharpness of detail I cannot live without! It's not as nice as the 4x quality setting, but still does a fine job of getting rid of the jaggies. Especially after my 64DDRVIVO, this was a complete surprise.

Anyway, I just wanted to let that out.

I feel so much better

In my experience, 2x performance is pretty good, for both quality and performance. The problem is in 4x.

i think the 8500 uses supersampling in its filtering which kinda takes alot of power
the 9700 uses mutlisampling like the nvidia cards
