8x, 10x, 12x and 14X FSAA emerges...

We heard about this quite some time ago but it simply slipped our collective mind.

ATI will be able to offer an extra feature, something that Nvidia doesn't offer with its SLI. Despite its Split screen, Super tiling and Alternate frame rendering modes ATI will be able to do one more rendering mode.

This one won't offer much of a performance difference but will let you use more then six times FSAA. That is the current limit with ATI cards while Nvidia can do some kind of 8X mode.

With its new technique ATI will be able to do 8x, 10x, 12x and even 14x FSAA. That surely sounds insane but if you want to have even better picture quality this is one choice that you will have. A 14 times Full Scene Anti Aliasing sounds like an interesting idea now when most of people are using 4X only.

Even if ATI is the follower in this round of marchitectural adventures, at least on paper, it turns out that ATI will enter aggressively and have some very good horses for the race.

We especially mean feature wise, as ATI's 14 X FSAA sounds like a big step forward in dual graphic card processing. Give us some features not just speed. ATI has been using Multi FSAA from the R300 times, as it was working with Military companies and on commercial air simulators to provide the insane number of FSAAs that those flight simulators need.

Its less then a week before the official announcement.
