    NVIDIA Quadro AA Modes


    Hello all,

    I was looking through the different AA modes for the quadro card in my Precision laptop. I have a limited understanding of how AA actually works. What has me curious is for example with the GTX 670 in my desktop has different labeled modes than the ones for the laptop quadro.

    The modes listed for the GeForce:

    Then the modes listed for the Quadro:

    My main question here is this:

    How do the different modes differ?

    For instance the Quadro has three different 8x modes listed. One is 4xMS 4xCS and the other is 4xSS and 2xMS, then the other is just 8x MS. How do these differ and which one is better?
