What is this?

X2 I can work out
X4 I can work out

But what on earth is Quincicum AA?

I have probably spelt it wrong but I am at work and can'r check.

I would imagine it's a 5 gun mount. Where is it referenced?

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

Eh?

According to that article Quincunx AA lies inbetween 2XAA and 4XAA in terms of the performance hit you take. I may be wrong (and it wouldn't be the first time!) but I could swear I heard it was less demanding that 2XAA on your card because it only anti-alias the edges of the polys being rendered rather than the whole scene... anyone?!

Hmmm dunno there bud......

The article is quite old now- I'm no expert on this either- have to see if someone else knows!
