Just wondering, there is no option to turn this off, it is either reg multi AA, Adaptive, or Super, so does this override any in-game AA settings or just enhance in-game AA settings?

I enabled Adaptive and noticed Hitman Blood Money looked better, but fps did dip a lot more often, thoughts?

Transparency AA, that you're speaking of is separate to standard AA - at least when setting it. It isn't over-riding anything.

You should have the options for OFF, multi-sample(adaptive) or super-sample.
Multi-sample should be adaptive.
Super-sample is just super-sample (AMD or Nvidia).

Try using ATI Tray Tools instead.

With AMD the MSAA options are multi-sample, adaptive multi-sample and super-sample. These settings will not override aplication settings if the AA settings at the top of the page are set on "use application settings".

BTW, AFAIK ATI Tray Tools is not actively maintained anymore and may better be not used with current-gen hardware.

And Phusius, are you sure you saw lag when playing HM:BM? On your setup there should not be any, unless you are using an framerate counter that showed a drop from say, 100 fps to 80 fps.
I may have a lower screen resolution, but still can play that game maxed out on a HD 6670.

Multi Sample, Adaptive AA and SuperSample AA are separate settings that can work either in conenction with FSAA multipliers in CCC itself or by the game settings. The tranaprency AA is only additional feature and can enhance existing FSAA modes. It will however not do anything on its own if you don't enable regular FSAA as well.

As mentioned, "use application settings" is always the equivalent of off where the GPU control panel settings are concerned.

I don't get why you'd first complain of FPS drops then prefer to leave on that setting, though I'm not convinced that was the cause of it.

Did you have AA off in game when you set CCC to Adaptive?

If the game doesn't support AA, which one is better supersampling or MSAA? Thanks.

Most of the time with these games MSAA won't work. Supersampling might work but there's a big performance hit.

Never mind, I just finished the game; I forced MSAAx4 on CCC but I still saw jaggies. It's Call of Juarez Gunslinger, one of those shooters you just can't put down, excellent game. Thanks anyway.
