Thread: QAA vs 4XAA

    Which is better QuinCunx Anti-Aliasing or 4X Anti-Aliasing. In quake 3 I'm getting 60-80 FPS with the QAA on and 40-60 with the 4XAA. Does that mean the 4X is doing a better job at smoothing my pixels?

    404 here too, but I notice that the popups attached to the page still work fine.

    I seem to recall having read a review comapring the two, and on closeup Quincunx looks to be much the same as 4x without the performance hit.

    well, if 40-60 fps bothers you, then yes, use QAA...

    Quincunx smooths jaggies "about" as well as 4X plus reduces texture aliasing slightly. However Quincunx blurs textures a lot more.

    4X gives much sharpers textures than Quincunx but is slower. You'd be best of using 2X FSAA & 32 or 64 tap anisotropic filtering if you want better image quality. Quincunx is too blurry to be considered "good"
