Anti-Aliasing Performance

Test System Specs: Hardware
- Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 (2.66GHz) LGA775


- x2 1024MB Corsair XMS PC3-10600 CAS7 Module(s)


- ASUS P5E3 Deluxe (Intel X38)


- OCZ GameXStream (700 watt)


- Seagate 500GB 7200RPM (Serial ATA II)


- Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX (768MB)
- Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS (640MB)
- ATI Radeon HD 2900XT (512MB)


- Microsoft Windows XP Pro 32bit (SP2)
- Nvidia Forceware (169.01)
- ATI Catalyst (7.10)

Given that anti-aliasing does very little to improve the visual quality in Crysis we recommend that you avoid using it. The performance hit is huge and it really rendered even the GeForce 8800 GTX useless at 1680x1050. This is clearly a quality setting reserved for the next generation of graphics cards.
