Default Which setting is best and what do they do?

I was wondering which setting is best for games and what do they each do that is better than the other?

Bilinear, trilinear and antiscopic filtering


Thanks.

Yeah, and hes right too

Set it to the highest setting for the best results.

It improves the problem of being able to see lines for example where a textures getting more detailed as you get closer to it, especially in an FPS.

I'm pretty sure on the highest setting, its doing 16 of these filters on a texture as you go towards it

So the answer would be anisotropic filtering?

Yep

Bilinear is just doing 2 stages, Trilinear is doing 3. Those have been around for ages.

Antistropic is much newer, and gives better results

I don't believe on the highest setting with a good card, theres any difference in the frames per second either. It just ends up sharper.

Now I'm just not sure how to set the Anti-aliasing 2x, 2xQ, 4x, 8xS?

Or should I leave everything to application controlled?
