What the Heck Are MSAA, FXAA, SMAA, and TXAA?!


– Here’s to another episode of the Minute Science playlist! If there’s anything else you’d like me to test or explain in this category, let me know in the comments below. The moral of this story: be mindful of which anti-aliasing methods you enable!

  1. Old video, but still very good. There seems to be very limited information on SMAA out there, and Google constantly redirects me to MSAA articles, instead. Why? Thank you for making this.

  2. i can barely spot subtle differences whilst looking at still images, however i think it's impossible "for me" to spot those differences while i'm playing the game. so there seeems to be no reason for me to activate anti aliasing and lose precious fps. thanks for the informative video m/ rock on brother

  3. I thought my 2080ti was broken since gtav was giving me like 30fps at 4k. Turns out MSAA was maxed out 🙂

  4. en wow sin SMAA tengo 120fps y con eso activado tengo 67fps ? no entiendo de que sirve no veo una mejora en nada

  5. My goto Video for A.A. 🤔 when my Gameplay was with my i5-2400 + 16gb + 1050 ti the choice was Simple : Fxaa 🕹 Now with my Ryzen 5 3600 + 32gb + Rtx 2060 8gb Super = 🤯 = at times ……… Thanx for Posting 🇵🇹

  6. Postprocessing antialiasing is just not antialiasing for me, it's all fake and blurry and it doesn't do what AA should do. Improvement from FXAA to SMAA is very huge, but I still prefer maximal sharpnes and no artifacts during moving.

  7. just got a 5700 amd sapphire pulse…can you do a video based on the difference in settings for Nvidia vs. AMD…basically which handles what better

  8. I'm just playing around with Watch_Dogs settings to get the best graphics possible without sending my low-end CPU into meltdown

  9. If, like me, you can’t stand blur:
    – SSAA is best for dealing with all aliasing but is the most performance intensive
    – MSAA is second best, even just 2x makes a big difference in games
    – SMAA is less effective but still sharp

    I would avoid FXAA, TXAA, TAA like the plague unless you hate visual clarity.

  10. I don't understand why almost everyone dislikes FXAA, I think blurried edges adds an cinemathic effect
