The best anti aliasing option for AMD A10-7850K?
« on: September 23, 2016, 06:22:51 pm »
So, in game (Armored Warfare), there are these options:

FXAA
SMAA
TXAA (2x and 4x)
MSAA (2x, 4x and 8x)

The best performance is with FXAA, but it barely does any AA. SMAA look better, but decreases performance. And so on.

What I would like to know is, do anyone know for what AA technique is this specific APU optimised for? What will get me the best balance between quality and performance.

 I use integrated GPU only. 2 GB (max) for GPU and 6 GB for CPU, running at 2133 MHz.

Well, you're limited because it's only an APU not discrete GPU with some horsepower. I'm surprised you can even use any form of AA.

Super-sampling is the best but most hungry. Temporal is best suited on AMD GPUs from what I recall (lowest performance hit) but as you can see it's a bit too optimised as it's useless. FXAA is blurry. SMAA is similar to FXAA but not as blurry.

I normally stick to 2x MSAA or go with DSR but I'm using a GTX 970.

You'll best just play around and go with whatever gives you a playable frame rate that's comfortable for you/

At some point I stopped caring about AA that much. I simply choose whatever does a good enough job visually and is not too taxing on rendering.

Well, for this game, the best option is SMAA. I can't even choose TXAA (maybe it is a bug), and MSAA is very hardware demanding.

I have given this game as an example, other games may have other options.
But, what I wanted to know is, does any of this techniques use some specific instruction set that this APU supports?

Does any of this matter for AA?

Has a NX bit    Yes
Supports trusted computing    Yes
Has virtualization support    Yes
Instruction set extensions:

    AES
    AMD-V
    AMD64
    AVX
    BMI1
    F16C
    FMA3
    FMA4
    MMX
    SSE
    SSE2
    SSE3
    SSE4.1
    SSE4.2
    SSE4a
    Supplemental SSE3
    TBM

Supports dynamic frequency scaling   Yes

I dunno, but wouldn't it make much more sense to ask such a question on the Armored Warfare forum (https://aw.my.com/en/forum )?
There, your question would have much better chances to be seen by many more AW players with a similar or identical HW configuration as yours...  :-//

I wanted to know in general. I have just used this game as an example, because it offers more AA options than some other games.

 Except the optimal option will vary from game to game because the efficiency of the different graphics engines used in different games varies considerably.

This. Some engines don't even support some AA modes.

Onto your APU, bear in mind that AA is bandwidth intensive, so any AA is texture-intensive games will obliterate performance due to the relatively low bandwidth of DDR3/dual channel.

nvidia and amd have their own secret AA techniques that the other brand will do poorly.
If i remember correctly AMD has msaa or something (you have to enable this from CCC rather than the game). Use the setting edge detect.

APUs are not bad for gaming, their main limitation is ram speed, so use the fastest ram you can (high clocks, low settings. All the AMD boards i have support faster memory out of the box but i dont know if this is true for the APUs. The same problem happens on intel IGP, sometimes a graphically intensive task can cause the CPU to stall and cause lag or vice versa.
