    Default NVIDIA Anti-Aliasing Performance Under Linux

    Phoronix: NVIDIA Anti-Aliasing Performance Under Linux

    For some Sunday benchmarking, here are some results of the different anti-aliasing levels available within NVIDIA's binary Linux graphics driver when using a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 "Kepler" graphics card.

    Yes, and there aren't even screen-shots to compare what the different settings look like?

    There's no way a 'look' at Anti-Aliasing performance is meaningful without examining the actual visual quality of each level in addition to the effect on frame rate.

    Erm... Wait... Why did the enabling of AA lead to a performance increase in some cases?

    I can't wait till we all have high density displays so we can toss AA into the trash.

    It doesn't need magic, it simply needs a high enough density so that aliasing doesn't occur to begin with.

    You will always have aliasing on a pixel based display.

    I believe PTS has a SShot option. I'd take a peek at the OBM results from which the article is derived and see if you can find them there.
