Anti Aliasing, what's better? 8x MSAA or 16x CSAA?

In theory, which mode would provide the best anti aliased image?

Thanks!.

Good Question.

According to Nvidia, it looks like CSAA:
Quote:
In summary, CSAA produces antialiased images that rival the quality of 8x or 16x MSAA, while introducing only a minimal performance hit over standard (typically 4x) MSAA.
Was looking around a bit for more info. about them myself.

Heres the original Source that Quote came from if interested:
CSAA - Coverage Sampled AA

The go to say later that x16 CSAA performs similar to x4 MSAA.


So it seems this means, performance-wise x16 CSAA = x4MSaa , but @ x8MSAA better quality, slower performance?
