Beyond 3D fails to go beyond 3D

...yet again.

If you are still wondering what all the fuss is about full-scene anti-aliasing in 3D cards, you owe it to yourself to go read this article, then download this nifty little program. The article and program are from Beyond3D. Although the article is a bit polemical (though not even half as polemical as this), it does make some important points about how other sites have handled screenshots of the Voodoo 5's anti-aliasing capabilities.

The program is very cool. It allows you to view some sample images using various anti-aliasing methods, including those used by both 3dfx and NVIDIA. Be careful, however: this program may make an FSAA believer out of you, inducing a strong desire for an otherwise-unnecessary video card upgrade.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
