Support for Morphological Anti-Aliasing

Following the official Catalyst 10.10 driver release, AMD has also rolled out the Catalyst 10.10a hotfix for Radeon HD 6800 series cards.

The new hotfix brings support for Morphological Anti-Aliasing feature, which is a new post-process filtering technique accelerated with DirectCompute. The new Morphological AA should provide faster full-scene anti-aliasing and is compatible with any DirectX 9, 10 and 11 application.

The 10.10a hotfix also brings some performance improvements in games like Aliens vs Predator, Star Craft 2 as well as some performance enhancements in Open GL games like Prey, Quake Wars and Unigine Heaven 2.1 benchmark.

You can find the new hotfix here.

Not really a hotfix if nothing has been fixed, just new features

Thumbs up for AMD, I just installed the new nvidia drivers and I've had 2 driver crashes because I was playing Team Fortress 2. Kudos to the nvidia driver team, for all their new drivers which crash my Source games.

Good but too bad this didn't get to the reviews. Some schmuck even used Cat 10.9a in their reviews.

I heard that Source games is more optimized for AMD, and it's not wise to install Nvidia drivers on rig with AMD GPU. :D

I have a GTX260, go to the nvidia forums and search for GTX260 driver crash, observe the nice number of opened topics.
nVidia's solution: "underclock your GPU".

I can confirm that the new Morphological AntiAliasing feature does not work with the Radeon HD 5970, nor does it work with Radeon HD 5970 Quad-CrossFireX configurations.

Is the feature limited to only Radeon HD 6000 Series cards? If any readers out there have managed to run it otherwise, please let us know.

Hotfix is code for, "we forgot to add this to the Catalyst driver with everything else. Oopsie!"

How to enable MLAA on Radeon HD 5000 series?

Two ways:

1 – Windows registry (not tested yet – if someone can confirm…)

So are you really trying to break computers on here by sending people to the registry?! Wow... just wow.
