  1. my fps was in the 90's no matter what anti aliasing i had on in gta5 and i definitely changed the anti aliasing because i could see an improvement the higher i went

  2. I get 35-55 fps ultra setting msaa x8, my pc config – ryzen5 1600, 8 gb 3000 mhz ram single channel, 1660ti, is it normal or i get low fps acc to my pc config plz help

  3. On 1080p i feel like msaa x8 is same like msaa off, so i thought to find that comments, but seems nobody can speak on that. I don't see the difference, those jaggies are always very noticable. MSAA probably works better… No, there is no difference.

  4. Ryzen 3950x, evga 2080ti ftw3 ultra gaming & 3600/14 OC to 3800/16:
    I tested all best settings possible with msaa 8x and 4x(nvidia txaa on&off) also gsync ofc and vsync off. Also 1440p 144hz

    8x: 40-77fps avg fps 60
    4x nvidia txaa on: 48-80fps avg fps 55..
    4x nvidia txaa off: 58-110 avg fps 65

    X4 txaa off is the best for me to for awesome quality and highest fps on it possible. lower settings in quality gives me 144fps for everything…

  5. Sadly, even MSAAx8 doesn't eliminate jaggies completely. The best I came up with 1060 3GB at 1440p native resolution is MSAAx2, nVidia MFAA enabled, TXAA enabled and ReShade luma sharpening.
