    Nothing. But it has nothing to do with the command line option.

    You know, if "intellectual capacity" is important to you, then why do you write idiotic posts?

    Then I tested with Tesselation Normal:
    4xAA: FPS: 26.8 / Scores: 674 / Min FPS: 18.9 / Max FPS: 54.4
    FXAA: FPS: 30.2 / Scores: 762 / Min FPS: 20.8 / Max FPS: 62.7
    Looks like the shaders get hammered on Tess Xtreme and FXAA suffers...

    That's one thing, and the other, since I can't stand tearing and since nVidia set Vsync ON by default in the newer drivers I tend to forget about it so my old tests (and this one above) where done with Vsync ON, so turning Vsync OFF with Tesselation Xtreme got me this:
    4xAA: FPS: 19.4 / Scores: 488 / Min FPS: 10.8 / Max FPS: 46.4
    FXAA: FPS: 21.5 / Scores: 542 / Min FPS: 11.5 / Max FPS: 54.0

    Maybe this needs testing with some other programs too, Michael said he has an AA comparison in the works so he'll cover it better, also I'm pretty sick of starring at looping demos daaammmit.
    More or less whats expected on a Windows OS then: FXAA is faster then 4xMSAA, but at the cost of some image quality in some instances.

    I am sure imaginary property is important to Intel and AMD too, but they still have managed to develop open source device drivers and released hardware documentation to device driver developers.

    Good for them.

    Sure. What does an option to blacklist the nouveau driver have to do with the nouveau driver?

    This is so easy to answer, a 4 year old could do it. But OK, since you don't understand, I'll explain:

    It stops the Nouveau driver from loading, because if it's loaded, any other driver accessing the same hardware cannot work.

    Ah well, some people simply have trouble grasping very simple things. Don't be ashamed. Rather, you should feel special.

    But then how would the threads get fertilized around here?

    Thumbs up

    ROFL! I don't think the threads here need that kind of an unhealthy fertilizer...

    You're making this too easy. It took you exactly two posts to turn 180 degrees. All I did was bemoan Nvidia's treatment of nouveau and here you are, still going around in circles raging about who-knows-what.

    Have a herbal infusion and leave the internet for a week, kid.
