    No, the line between the hull of the ship and the protruding rock face is slightly smoother on the right. That's it.

    AMD's Morphological filtering is terrible.

    It messes up text, blurs a lot of things in some games or just blurs everything, and it eats up tons of performance.

    Don't even bother using it.

    Hey do any of you have AT&T? They said we can get an early iPhone upgrade in January. Do they use iPhone in place of any other smartphone because they can sell an iPhone easier to people or is it iPhone early? I want an early phone, and since my BDay is in Janaury I'll be able to afford a rather nice phone, but I want an Android phone, not an iPhone. iPhones and other smartphones (bb, android, wp7) all require the same plans. So does AT&T mean any smartphone or just the iPhone?

    is that a trap to make me get your iPhone or do I seriously have to get an iPhone unless I wait 6 months?

    the iPhone is one of AT&T's most popular phones so if anything it's a promo.

    This is how bad it is.

    I can play Battlefield 3 with everything Ultra and 4x AA with 60+ fps (50 fps minimum, but it rarely dips below 57) at 1920x1080, but with AMD's Morphological filtering/ Morphological AA instead of normal AA and everything ultra at 1920x1080 I get 40fps max.

    It's complete shit.

    If you're going to use a 3rd party AA addon, use SMAA. Fuck you Brt for getting me into it, but goddammit it's good. MLAA really fucks up text everywhere, SMAA CAN (It does with Steam overlay, that's for certain) but doesn't always, it's on a game to game basis. Something like BF3 looks amazing with it, same for games like DiRT and Crysis.

    SMAA is MLAA without the FPS rape (There is a drop, that's for certain, I stuck it on the Unigene Heaven benchmark on ultra and lost about 10 to 5 FPS) and looks 100x better than MLAA.

    I use SMAA on my laptop, on BF3 and performance wise works better and looks better than FXAA. The best part with SMAA is how it doesn't replace MSAA, but compliments it. DiRT 3, 8x (max) MSAA and Ultra SMAA. I got a performance hit of only 8 FPS at the worst times, with the average being 4 FPS drop and the only aliasing to be found was when there was no possible way of anti-aliasing, there were no pixels to smooth to.

    How the fuck did I drag that out so long.

    Of course, but usually promotions have a point to them to get money. This is just letting iPhone buyers get iPhones quicker.

    I use SMAA for WoW on my laptop

    I asked Brt about SMAA a few weeks ago or so, been meaning to trying on BF3 but I'm too lazy.

    It's the plan that gets them money.

    The iPhone has a slightly changed plan that's slightly more expensive.

    I know this since we got this promo for my mom when she was getting a new phone, our payments went up $4 after getting the iPhone.

    $4 a month.

    We only did it because we would be able to keep our unlimited plan due to being grandfathered in since they no longer offer it.

    I get weekly messages saying I'm in the top 1% for data usage and that I need to reduce my data usage. Hell no, I am going to take advantage of this unlimited thing for as long as I can.

    But the horrible cc that BF3 has. You need the FXAA injector to mend it.

    Uh. BF3's FXAA is fine.
    It's not the best, but it's fine. I'd say the best use of FXAA would have to be Deus Ex: HR. Fucking perfect.

    I really want to get my desktop switched over to Arch. Using Samba shares to do work on my server is tedious, and honestly, exactly 2 games have piqued my interest this year, the rest I don't care about.

    The only thing that would keep me on Windows on this laptop is the fact switchable GPU's do not agree well with Linux, I haven't tried on my laptop yet so I'll have to hope it works.
