How to Disable Anti-Aliasing on AMD

If you’re using an AMD graphics card and want to disable anti-aliasing for games and applications, you can do this through the AMD Radeon Settings or the AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin (depending on the version you have). Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Open AMD Radeon Settings/Software:
    • Right-click on an empty area of your desktop.
    • From the context menu that appears, select “AMD Radeon Settings” or “AMD Radeon Software”.
  2. Navigate to the Gaming Section:
    • Once the software is open, click on the “Gaming” tab or section.
  3. Adjust Global Settings (Optional):
    • If you want to disable anti-aliasing for all applications and games:
      • Click on “Global Settings”.
      • Locate the “Anti-Aliasing Mode” setting.
      • Click on it and choose “Use application settings” (this means that anti-aliasing will be determined by each game’s internal settings) or “Disabled” to turn it off entirely.
  4. Adjust Program-Specific Settings:
    • If you want to disable anti-aliasing only for specific games or applications:
      • Under the “Gaming” section, find and click on the game or application you want to customize. If it’s not listed, you might need to add it manually by clicking the “Add” button.
      • Once selected, locate the “Anti-Aliasing Mode” setting for that specific game/application.
      • Click on it and select either “Use application settings” or “Disabled”.
  5. Apply Changes:
    • Your changes should be automatically saved, but ensure you apply any changes if the option is available.
  6. Close the AMD Software:
    • You can now close the AMD Radeon Settings/Software and run your game or application. The changes should take effect.

As with NVIDIA, disabling anti-aliasing might lead to increased performance, but you might also see more jagged edges in games. If you experience any graphic artifacts or other issues after making changes, consider reverting the settings or trying a different level of anti-aliasing.
