    On cards like the 1060 or 1080 if you enable FXAA in the nvidia panel does it give a perfomrance hit on these newer gen cards. I know my card cant handle it but I use 16x AA CSAA ,,,,, and I noticed through testing that there is no performance hit going from 0 AA to 16x AA CSAA ,,,,, either way my framerate goes to 40fps,, but not lower then jumps to 60fps ,,, I dont want this I want to stay at 60fps ,,, so I think the card for me is the 1070 and what not. thx :banana:

    FXAA, like anisotropic filtering and other high end novelties, are pretty much a no go on 10 series gpus. Stick with bilinear filtering for optimal texture clarity and if the jaggies really bother you that much, move your chair back a few feet from your monitor and put your keyboard and mouse on a tv tray.

    wtf is this thread? a troll??

    I get zero impact in performance when using FXAA, SMAA, and AF.

    must be a troll thread.

    "FXAA, like anisotropic filtering"... what?

    Because of the high quality blurring of strictly bilinear filtering, I find that the jaggies give some nice sharpness for that extra oomph!

    16x AA CSAA with fxaa srsly? When you use SMAA or FXAA you have low performance impact. You have low fps because you use 16xAA. Use Reshade and enable SMAA or FXAA. Don't use AA with posprocessing AA(SMAA, FXAA). SMAA or FXAA it's enough

    Yes, quite true. Like a poor man's lumasharpen (another fps crippling high end feature that the OP should stay away from).

    I find alternating both with 5 second intervals works well

    It is - it's a post-process filter that reduces aliasing.

    1. FXAA is a shader algorithm.

    2. The 10xx series have more shader units for faster shader processing.

    I find the more blurring I add, the higher the performance I'm getting because the gpu has less to do because the image isn't as sharp. At 2xAA I get twice the fps and at 4xAA I get nearly quadruple fps. The more AA I use, the higher the fps I get. It's an excellent performance boosting feature!

    If this thread isn't a troll, as others have suggested, then you're forcing anti-aliasing through drivers into games that don't support it. Given that your info says you're running in 4K, it's entirely possible that you can't notice the difference. FXAA has a negligible performance impact although it could potentially in certain situations be the difference between 60 and the next fraction of your refresh when using vsync.

    Anyway, for 4K you'd better have at least a 1070. I have a substantially overclocked 1070 and whether I can manage 1080, 1620 or 2160 depends on the game in question.

    Besides CSAA doesn't work since GF 900series (Maxwell+), it was replaced with MFAA, so... :F

    The OP, like the rest of us, is using Nvidia Inspector which still lists it under the anti-aliasing mode list. edit: oh wait it doesn't matter because he's on 7-series

    MFAA is cool for all of the modern games in 2016 that still support MSAA, though. All of those zero games.

    This thread should be printed, burned, frozen, burned again and thrashed.

    CSAA or MSAA has literally nothing to do with MFAA. MFAA is just a gimmick multiframe AA done via alternating sample positions while still using one sample per frame.
