    I take it as TAA but with some of the specifics spelled out. My best, ignorant guess - "viewport jittered" means the camera view is offset fractions of a pixel between frames; "neighbourhood clamped" means the sample value (either final AA sample or temporal sample) is clamped within the value of neighbours; 'high feedback' means either a significant weight to previous frame values or using multiple previous frame values. "No MSAA" means that abrupt changes should see zero AA on some edges.

    The above screenshots do have zero AA edges. Very noticeable on Scully.

    That's the best "guess" I've read in my life. You do lovely work Shifty. [​IMG]

    So many different types of anti-aliasing available for devs to work with. Don't know if that's a blessing or curse; but it's nice for them to have options and see which one fits their needs. Even crazy solutions like "VJNCHFTAA." :lol: :yes:

    What Timothy is describing is the basic TAA formula used in UE4, Ryse, and perhaps another game or two. I'm sure he's just eyeballing it, since he has a lot of experience in this area.

    Doesn't TAA use MSAA in some form? Or was it TXAA?!?

    You're probably thinking of nVidia's TXAA, which uses MSAA in conjunction with a temporal component. :)

    Yep, that's it!!

    Ok, so then the UC4 AA is not TXAA...good to know :)

    I hope TAA is effective though...

    I more inclined to believe it's using something similar (maybe higher sample) to Infamous Second Son.

    Playstation Access played at AC Syndicate (Alpha build) on their PS4. Image quality seems better than ACU, it's sharper and I heavily suspect the use of a Temporal AA, I think someone already assumed as much somewhere here.

    They say the game is very smooth. I find exactly :cool2: 900p here:

    With the performance the way it was in Unity and the graphics the way they are in Syndicate I didn't expect them to be able to optimize it enough to run at 1080p in time for Syndicate, but I was hoping. Maybe next game.

    NXGamer seems to think it is 1080P from the E3 footage.

    Well, the hope is not over yet, AC Unity Alpha builds were running at 720p on XB1.

    The E3 build was running at 900p. The PS4 version was the only version shown at E3 by Dice.

    Man... They need to get this to 1080p. No 1080p is no sale for me.

    Overall they seem to have downgraded some parts graphically (skin SSS, lighting, crowd density) compared to Unity so maybe this time it'll be 1080p and probably 30 fps as well, don't hold your breath for the latter though, this gen multiplatform games are usually a mess performance wise. Pays off to have a good enough PC so you can brute force the code :D
