TH just uploaded part 2 of Deeper with the Radeon X1900 series. As promised,
in this article they examine both adaptive antialiasing and HDR rendering on the
Radeon X1900 series. They did find ATI's adaptive antialiasing image quality to be
somewhat 'lacking', but in a way, that's to be expected. HDR rendering is
stronger though. It's a shame than NVIDIA didn't take the time to beef up the
GeForce 7900 with HDR and AA support.
ATI's latest offering, the Radeon X1900 XTX is strong, but it does have its weak
points. We already covered the lack of performance with texture dependent games
in our last article. Now we discovered that ATI's adaptive antialiasing is not as
effective as NVIDIA's transparency anti aliasing. You don't really gain that much
image quality improvement, even with Quality setting..
