NVIDIA Editor's Day 2014 - Another interesting technology unveiled by NVIDIA in Monterey Bay was MFAA, a new anti-aliasing technique that isn't as harsh on your hardware.




MFAA stands for Multi-Frame Sampled AA, where NVIDIA finds more information inside of every pixel on your screen, anti-aliasing the scene much better. It has the performance hit of 2x MSAA, but the look of 4x MSAA, which will provide gamers with a better looking image, without the performance hit they're used to with traditional AA methods, like MSAA.
