New Catalyst Drivers Add StarCraft 2 AA
If you head over to the GAME.AMD.COM's Drivers & Support Page, you'll find the new version 10.8 Catalyst reference drivers for ATI graphics cards.

This latest driver update offers support for OpenGL ES 2.0, performance enhancements for Eyefinity Quad ATI CrossFireX configurations, in addition to the non-beta anti-aliasing support for Blizzard's StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty.

Wow, finally. What the hell took them so long? I know quite a lot of SC 2 players were complaining about this. Oh well... Better late than never I suppose.

Bah, there is no need for AA in Starcraft 2. At least, that's my humble opinion!

There was a hotfix driver already released weeks ago that enabled AA support, but the performance hit was such that I didn't feel it was worth it. I only really notice the lack of anti-aliasing in between missions on the Hyperion anyway, and it's only background objects that get the aliasing, generally.

If the performance hit is 10 frames or more, I don't even think I'd enable it.

Yeah I agree with Cheddar... the only times you need it are when you piddling around in between missions.

why a game developer needs to rely on a driver company to provide AA (or ANY feature) support that has been coded specifically for said game is beyond me.

if you want anti-aliasing support - add it to your fucking engine. There's absolutely nothing stopping a game developer from adding anti-aliasing support to their engine themselves...this made up reliance is about as BS as excuses come....
