Comments on 3D/2D image quality Radeon 9700 vs Geforce4

Recommended Posts

I'm well aware of the technical differences of these two products, but how do they compare as far as image quality in 2D and 3D? Thanks,Noel

Not sure about the 2D/3D perspective of the Radeon 9700, but I know that my GF4 Ti4600 works great. I've heard about quite a few performance issues with the Radeon 9700, so I wouldn't recommend that you get it, at least until ATI cleans it up. For now, I'd recommend the GeForce 4 Ti4600.Ryan-Flightpro08 :-cool VATSIM Pilot/ControllerZLA ARTCC Controller 1 (C-1)SAN TRACON Lead [link:www.taxiwaysigns.com]Taxiwaysigns.com Scenery Designerhttp://members.cox.net/santracon/images/san_logo.jpg-----------------------------My "Home Made" System Specs:Intel Pentium 4 2.2GHz ProcessorTurbo Gamer ATX Mid-Tower with 420W Power SupplyEPoX 4G4A Motherboard with Intel 845G ChipsetVisiontek XTASY GeForce4 128MB Ti4600 (Det 30.30 Drivers)512MB PC2100 DDR RAM40GB Matrox 7200RPM Hard DriveWindows XP Home Edition SP1*No CPU or GPU Overclocking*3dMark2001SE Score: 11298

Radeon 9700 has superior Anisotropic Filtering quality, and slightly better FSAA quality. On top of that, it's also twice as fast as the Geforce4 :)ATI has been known for great 2D quality, while Nvidia hs been known for not-so-great 2D quality, but Nvidia has improved a lot with the Geforce3-Ti series and Geforce4.

It's a technique used when sampling texture pixels for rendering to the display. It's expensive computationally, but it prevents distortion, moire patterns, and other artifacts from appearing. The effects are most noticeable when viewing a texture at an oblique angle to the surface.In layman's terms...it sharpens the texture clarity where ordinarily, significant detail might otherwise be lost or compromised creating unpleasant visual artifacts.My understanding is that ATI has nVidia beat hands down in this arena.
