Just one more thing: the manufacturer does say that the mClassic provides AA.
TBH, I find the mClassic's marketing blurb to be a bit misleading when calling it a graphics card. At the end of the day, the mClassic is an upscaler with post-processing functionality . It may very good at what it does, but there is only so much that you can do with a low-resolution image generated by a vintage console . An emulator, such as Dolphin, can actually render 3D graphics at a higher resolution than the original hardware, something that can only be simulated/approximated using a post processor .
Anti-aliasing, in the broadest sense, is any method that reduces aliasing or the appearance thereof, so if the mCable (or another post-processor/upscaler) uses some kind adaptive (most likely temporal) filter that reduces the appearance of the "jaggies" that are due to aliasing it is, in effect, providing a form of anti-aliasing . Not all forms of anti-aliasing are equal in their effectiveness and only some methods can be implemented exclusively as a post-processing effect . See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-aliasing as a starting point .
EDIT : One, admittedly imperfect analogy, is trying to use an image processor to improve the appearance of a VHS movie versus going with the DVD (or Blu Ray) version instead .
