How to Disable Anti Aliasing on Intel Arc Graphics Cards

With the new version of the Intel Arc Control app, you can no longer disable anti aliasing at a graphics card level. You have to disable or control the Conservative Morphological Anti-Aliasing (CMAA), Multisample Anti-Aliasing (MSAA) and Anti Aliasing options at game or software level.

The only way to control it at graphics card level is to downgrade the drivers of both the Intel Arc Control app and your Arc GPU drivers to a version sometime in early 2023 by following these steps: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000089377/graphics.html.

Then continue by doing this:

To disable anti aliasing on Intel Arc graphics cards which in Intel’s case it’s actually Multisample Anti-Aliasing (MSAA), you’ll need to use the Intel Arc Control software.

  • Install *Intel Arc Control* or *Game On* Drivers if you haven’t already: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/docs/discrete-gpus/arc/software/arc-control.html. Try finding an earlier version of this software from either early or late 2023, this is the one that actually has the option to disable anti aliasing at graphics card level.
  • Open Intel Arc Control: This is Intel’s graphics control panel for Arc GPUs.
  • Go to the *Display* or *3D* settings: The exact location will depend on your software version because Intel is rather new to the discrete GPU market. Their drivers and software changes a lot to make their GPUs more efficient.
  • Look for *Anti Aliasing*, *AA* or *MSAA*: This will be under a submenu for image quality or performance options.
  • Set the setting to *Off* or *Disabled*: This should turn off all forms of anti aliasing at the driver level.
  • Apply the changes and restart your computer.
