New NVIDIA Beta Drivers Add FXAA

GeForce.com now offers new NVIDIA GeForce beta version 301.24 drivers, adding new gaming features and promising a performance boost in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Here's a bit on what the new driver family introduces:

With the release of the GeForce 301.24 beta driver, a high-speed, shader-based anti-aliasing technique can be applied directly to hundreds of games through the NVIDIA Control Panel. Called NVIDIA FXAA, this technique is up to 60% faster than 4xMSAA, and can produce results equal to or better than the ageing anti-aliasing solution. Furthermore, FXAA is able to anti-alias increasingly-popular transparent textures, as shown in our Batman: Arkham City Graphics Breakdown and Performance Guide, making it the clear winner in many of today’s games.

FXAA is not called blur AA for nothing. ^^ It makes the ugly pixels go away, muddles color definitions, and blurs definitions and contrasts, that is why to actually use FXAA PROPERLY you need pre and post sharpening filters with color, contour and contrast awareness.

Amount of games and drivers that do this without an injector = 0

So forget using FXAA in the driver, get the FXAA Injector instead.

by the way, did they fix that FXAA is applied to the GUI in games not made for it? That'd be the only thing it would have going for it then
