On this page we'll compare the image quality in-between ATI and NVIDIA. As you will learn, ATI is not yet ready with their drivers and as such AntiAliasing is not yet supported. The majority of our test sessions will have either 0xAA for ATI and NVIDIA graphics cards and 4xAA solely for NVIDIA's graphics cards.
Let's have a peek. We test with modern gear, in-game we enable EVERYTHING we can enable, if it can be set to ULTRA we will do so.
Above an ATI reference screenshot from the time-demo we created, well recording actually. Now have a look at NVIDIA's quality:
As you can see, though scaled down, you can not detect any image quality difference whatsoever with the naked eye.
However in this example we have a 1:1 screenshot with ATI on the left and to the right NVIDIA, we nowzoom in at the terrain. You'll agree with me that if you look at the background closely, you'll notice that that surface area is a little sharper for NVIDIA. ATI does have a little more work and polishing to do. Object quality definitely is the very same.
You are looking at a 24-bit PNG image by the way, converted from 24-bit BMP screenshots. This is as good as it gets on screen.
