For the type of AA people want you will not see on an HDTV. The reason why you're seeing the issue right now is that the engines are cutting corners. A more powerful machine won't have to cut these corners. It'll have more effective ways of doing it than costly AA.

AA is actually very cheap compared to rendering in higher resolution. (eg. to get the same amount of visual comfort as a render with 4xMSAA at 1080p, the render without AA has to be rendering at 7680x4320) The reason why AA was so expensive in previous gen GPUs was because the hardware wasn't built for it. With latest development such as nvidia's coverage based techs and ati's screen space based AA (which incur almost no framerate hit) it can only get cheaper.
