That's,a bit presumptuous since no one knows the final specs of RSX. For,all we know, it may have the same 10MB EDRAM that Xenos has. Or,more. Or some other little gizmo that will allow it to do FSAA,with little or no performance hit. We just don't know.

The GPU will have AA.

,IT WONT! jees... the EDRAM in the Xenos isn't standard EDRAM... the ram itself does the zbuffering and 4xFSAA without any noticeable hit to the GPU or CPU... nothing can compair because there isn't anything like this graphics processor... the RSX will probably be very close to the new G70s that are out for the pc now. You should google Xenos specs and check out some of the articals. This is something that is patend I do beleive.
