Last week NVIDIA pointed attention to German reports that AMD has lowered the default image quality in its Catalyst drivers, which could be considered as cheating. Hexus has been in contact with AMD, the firm denies it's cheating and claims its default settings are now "on par" with NVIDIA's defaults:
Now a representative from AMD has gotten in touch with us to try and set the record straight. Obviously the company denies any accusations of underhand tactics and reaffirmed its commitment to the PC gaming community. The rep also pointed out that the default image-quality settings in the Catalyst drivers had recently been revisited and that they were - in AMD's opinion - "on par" with NVIDIA's defaults.
The statement added that the company takes "great care in determining the default settings of Catalyst drivers" and that the current defaults "deliver a very good gaming experience".
