    Any reason for wanting to keep using the 680 driver, better performance, or is it the new features?

    with all that has been told, apart from being curious there's no need for me, with my setup, to install these .

    I tried SMAA on several occasions but I really didn't see much difference with FXAA -- it's mostly the same AA, same blur. Using driver FXAA is just simplier than setting up injectors. Plus I'm interested in testing how it works at the moment.

    It's a little bit tricky to grab driver's FXAA because Fraps seems to not be able to do it and one time I tried using Print Screen all I've got was a black rectangular.

    Nvidia FXAA seems to be a bit better than BF3 ingame FXAA.

    I meant the point where the monitor has reached the bottom and is ready to start from the top.
    But how can it do that if it will sit there and wait for next timer before forwarding the data in it's buffer?
    So if it draws 2 frames that means that the VSYNC timer somehow got offset from the vertical retrace interval?

    Because it doesnt wait, it carries on regardless if vsync isnt enabled.
    Thats what vsync is for.

    Yes they can easily render and refresh at varying times.

    yes, i realize post AA is some sort of FXAA but, i was hoping maybe nvidias FXAA might be a bit less blurring like SMAA.

    You can use Nvidia Inspector to allow FXAA. Edit the BF3 profile, set "NVIDIA Predefined FXAA Usage" to "FXAA_ALLOW_ALLOWED". Then there are to other settings that allow you to actually turn on FXAA and an indicator (green square in upper left corner when FXAA is on). I think there is less blurring than BF3's FXAA on high but equally good smoothing.

    Also checked out FXAA in SC2 and Crysis 2 DX11. Very good result in SC2. Blurring comparable to SGSSAA. Also much better than Crysis 2's own post processing AA. Way less blur. Smoothing is good, but still MSAA would be needed badly in this game.

    The FXAA via inspector for BF3 is better than Smaa Injector?

    you tried r_postmsaa 1 in cfg right? gets rid of most aliasing, no blurring either.

    Certainly pretty good smoothing, blurs quite a bit though. Easily noticeable when you turn it on and off in the console.

    Hard to tell without the ability to take a screenshot. It might blur a bit more but I think smoothing is comparable. I recommend you check it out for yourself.

    iirc it didnt cause blurring to me. but try these, put in your cfg.
    r_UseEdgeAA = 0
    r_PostMSAAEdgeFilterNV = 0
    r_PostMSAA = 1

    just tryed out adaptive v-sync with iRacing..to see if it would cure the studder problems at the newer/bigger tracks..
    it does well..locks the fps to 60 of the lcd monitors..but where the studder used to start on track, there is like some frames being dropped..like when the adaptive v-sync switches, there is a jump in the frames..ill see it all nice and smooth then when going into corners for instance, ill see the graphics jump a few frames ahead..

    also tryed FXAA on iRacing (no v-sync and at triple head resolution!)..and saw a massive drop in fps..from the 80-90fps range down to the 20s..but that could just be my gtx470!

    FXAA with these drivers does seem to look a bit better, but when I tried to do some comparing, FXAA didn't show up in the FRAPS screens. Either way, it also works in more games than it used to, as I could never get driver level FXAA or injected SMAA or FXAA to work in OFPDR, but the new driver level FXAA works in it now.

    I noticed the same. I tried Deus Ex - HR with built-in FXAA and driver version (300.10) and the driver version was definitely without excess blur.
