Guys, Cabal online!(what a punchline, isn't it?
I'm a hardcore ATi fan after the 7950gt that has cost me a fortune, sorry Nvidia. You are never on my agenda any more.
I would like to point out some highlights:
-Nvidia does suffer from lower video quality according to the HardOCP comparison as well(173 subjective score versus ATi's 190-200).
-AlienBabeltech antialiasing comparison test indicates hd5770 has more READABLE textures than gtx280, if any improvement has come on Nvidia's side, sorry that I am uninformed(my assumption is that Nvidia marketting team wouldn't miss the opportunity of new antialiasing algorithms).
-The whole b.s.(sorry, but I really need to use the word when most tft monitors are hardware limited to 6bit color depth while we are discussing 16bit color depth=FP16) surrounding a mass media attack on ATi does not mean that ATi renders worse. It just hides the truth that Nvidia lacks full speed FP11 support. Textures compressed to 32bit packets in size are not transferred twice as fast as 64bit textures via memory channel, so Nvidia drops all support on efficient Dx11 custom texture formats altogether, or more objectively speaking, doesn't gain any efficiency>that is a fault on Nvidia's memory management; ATi is not to blame, or to falsify.
I checked the textures comparison and believe me Nvidia has some jittery ridges, too.
-According to performance, I would say AMD/ATi cards are for those who respect performance at power efficiency and Nvidia's offers suit heavy overclockers better.
At stock, I prefer ATi for the bang for buck.

How about RGB LEDs (instead of "white" LEDs)?

yeah, it's not cheap

Wow I'm such a noob. I've always thought image quality differences were only for game rendering.

Makes me want to go ATI now but I'm a Linux user... Will an Nvidia card be noticeably better than my on board Intel for HD videos?
post #48 of 63
I cringed when i read the title of this thread.

I think what the OP is getting at is the AA and AF features on the cards.

I've used both ATI (5970) and Nvidia (8800GTX / GTX 285) and i must say there is a noticeable difference.

Nvidia + ATI have different techniques when applying AA, Personally I prefer Nvidia's.

But i also didn't realise there was a difference until i got my 5970 (which i had for 3 days and sent it back after TERRIBLE performance and LAME drivers)

I just when from crossfired 5850's to a single 580. The images are...different. I wouldn't say better, but I've really noticed the change. I think that AA is better with the 580, but my 5850s gave better shadows and water effects. The colors seem brighter and more defined with the 580 as well. This is on the same monitor too.

So maybe I'd say the 580 is a little better, but it depends on what you look at or value. The colors and more defined objects were actually giving me light motion sickness when I first fired it up...or at least I think it was. I've never had motion sickness before, but till I got used to it I had trouble looking at the screen. That has never happened to me before. Took about an hour of Eve Online to get over it.

Good to know. Thank you.

LED backlights are not as good as CCFL. If you want high quality you need to get an H-IPS panel.
Thank you as well.

So what do the websites that do the reviews and benchmarks (that have been posted) use for GPUs? It's not that simple. Most of us have used both brands for years each.
