Default It is funny that... (AA&AF)

It is funny that everyone makes a big deal about running with full AA and AF
when most people won't run a game with it anyway.

I want the fastest framerates possible while playing Planetside online. The
faster it runs, the better chance I have of not dying.

The candy looks great when showing off my system, but when it comes to game
time...

I don't run games without it.

Not full AA/AF, that would be stupid. I run with 2x AA and 2x AF... that's
good for me, and much better than default.

AA and AF is usually defined by the application, though power users can
force it too.

faster than 30fps is useless for a human being, you need a lot of fps
just in case there's a brutal drop, but having 150fps instead of 70 is
really useless.
Anyway, your reflexes are the weak link. What can you do in 20ms ?

Get a clue before you go around spreading BS.

I'm returning the answer to you ; and please stay polite with people on
Usenet. Cinematographic movies are played at 24fps (unless you only go
to Imax theatres, but I really doubt it).

And I can often sense the individual frames, it gives me a headache
sometimes.

Next clueless example?

True, but I only use 2xAA not 8x which is what everyone seems to be ranting
about.


well, back 20 years ago, 16 colours were perfect. Just like some people
can detect if a compressed song was compressed with Lame, Frauhnofer or
OGG, some people may see the difference between FSAA4x and FSAA8x.

But I doubt it. I think all this has been perverted. The differences do
exist, that cannot be denied, but if you have to zoom-in 4 times on a
still image to see the difference, I think it's just a no-difference.
Has not anyone wondered why during reviews the journalists always have
to zoom-in on details to show that FSAA256x is (a bit) better than FSAA2x ?

Well actually your eye runs at 24fps. So 30fps should be quite fine
alredy. Are you disturbed while you watch movies ? If not then how in
the hell can you survive 25fps (movies are in 99% encoded at 25fps)???
There might be that over 30 fps might make things more smooth and you
could detect that in the long turn but for normal actions 30fps should
be just fine.
