I haven't seen those settings in the linux driver on a per application
basis. The windows driver does offer per game/application settings, mostly
for how it is handled if you have a SLI enabled system, whether you want the
application to be rendered by one video card, or vertical sync SLI etc. It
also has options to enable/disable anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering.
As far as I know you can only specify a global SLI setting in xorg.conf
