Battlefield 4 Antialiasing Tip

HARDOCP has a tip for playing Battlefield 4 on Windows they came up with while putting the military shooter sequel through its paces for their technical evaluation. They encountered some odd results in the game's antialiasing, and have this preliminary tip for users looking to improve the game's visuals:
We are hard at work testing BF4, and the first thing we discovered was that the textures did not seem up to par for a new Frostbite 3 engine game. We quickly found out that by turning the "Antialiasing Post" (inherently FXAA) graphics setting to "Off," fixed this problem. The textures were now much sharper, clearer, and the fidelity in the entire game was better.

Post AA seems to be adding blur over the entire image, even though it does reduce aliasing on everything. It is the nature of FXAA, but it seems apparently bad in BF4 according to our testing so far. You have an interesting choice. We have a poll and a discussion thread which we would love to hear your feedback on what settings you prefer while you play BF4.

I rarely use AA even if my rig easily handles the game.

My general setup in almost every game:

1920x1080
AF 16x
V-Sync: Off (unless there's bad tearing)
Shadows: High (or one setting lower than maximum. Generally looks the same but gives a huge performance boost).

FXAA: Off
Bloom: On (game dependent, some games go a little nuts with bloom)


I find nearly every game I play looks and runs better with these settings.


My rig:
i5 3570k
8GB DDR3
AMD Radeon HD 6970
