FPS+Hz and antialiasing!!!!

Post by charliegomes » 25 Nov 2018, 10:59

Hello, is someone know it is best for input lag and clarity (pro player here) if my fps are avg. 260 in games drops to 140 of course this set in nvidia panel :

Gsync on
pre rendered frames "1"
Vsync "on"
In game config 162fps cap
Or something other?

My monitor is 165hz gsync ips (aoc ag271qg)

And other question is

+fxaa or taa is better for fps games (i want good graphic without blur)

Thanks so much for every answer!! Have a good day..

Your setup is correct. If you run your monitor at 165Hz, then an in-game cap of 162FPS will make sure you don't get input lag.

As for which AA setting to use, that's up to you. TAA usually has more blur, FXAA has more pixelation. But not always. It depends on how the game implements these AA methods. But you can just see that for yourself. You can just take a screenshot with FXAA and one with TAA and compare them.

If you want "no" blur, neither of those.

FXAA is a post process AA technique that mostly affects the highest contrast edges in a scene and basically attempts to darken/blend them to reduce aliasing, but blurs the whole screen in doing so, and it still doesn't do much for highly oblique-angled or sub-pixel edges.

TAA takes information from the previous frame and blends it with the next frame to reduce aliasing, and applies best in motion. This method also creates blur (often a bit more than FXAA), but, unlike FXAA, it usually solidifies sub-pixel elements, and eliminates sub-pixel shimmering, which is caused by fine-lined in-game assets such as wires, railing, stairs, as well as any shiny elements such as the edges of reflective metal, etc. Do note, unlike FXAA, some TAA implementations can create ghosting or other artifacts due to frame blending, but good TAA still has the best coverage (both for static scenes and in motion) of any post process AA method currently available.

Then there's SMAA, which is natively available in some games, and can also be injected with Reshade. Standard SMAA is basically FXAA with slightly better edge detection and no blur, but without the blur, you lose some coverage.

If you mean motion blur, then most plain AA modes doesn’t interfere with motion blur.

If you mean spatial blur, then yep, it does slightly “soften” in exchange for making pixelly edges disappear.
