GeForce 8800 GTX SLI supports 32x FSAA

Posted on Tuesday, November 14 2006 @ 00:59:16 CET by

Certain ForceWare drivers enable 32x FSAA support on two GeForce 8800 GTX graphics cards in SLI.
FSAA is a cool thing and it didn’t take Nvidia much to get from a maximum of 6X FSAA in Geforce series 7 to 16X for a single card in Geforce series 8 cards. With the right driver and two cards in SLI you will get the FSAA 32 X option.

We tried it, it works well and looks cool.

At 20x15 it can bring even two G80s to their knees. At 20x15 - even in Far Cry - we got some twentyish frames per second performance. In its PR documents, Nvidia spins that in 16X mode a single card should not perform much slower than in FSAA 4 X mode. We still have to check this claim.

The FSAA 32X Q driver is called 96.89 dated 10/16/2006 and it supports FSAA 8X, 8X Q, 16 and 16Q and only 32Q. There are no signs of a normal 32X mode.
