I remember back in the days when we were comparing the ATI Radeon 64MB DDR to the NVIDIA GeForce 2 and basically the GeForce 2 was faster but the Radeon 64MB DDR offered better image quality. How come there are no discussions about image quality anymore?

Because G80 has the best image quality ever. Full stop, end thread here. :D

Probably aswell because no one is using dirty tricks anymore, and hardware is fast enough so they don't have to anymore.

LoL, there were so many comparisons in the past ... Did you miss something? Remeber NV40 vs. R380, G70 vs. R520, G80 vs. R600. Everything was full of IQ comparisons -.-

U avin a laugh, dude. There have been a fair few threads on various forums about this and it ALWAYS turns in to a nVidia/ATI flame war.

Maybe because there are not that big of differences as before. Like a ton of reviews have been saying for at least a couple years now. That would be my guess. If there are big differences I would think that at least the fanboy sites would be harping on them. Maybe they are come to think of it, I no longer read reviews from fanboy sites as they are a pure waste of time.

I'd have to say that the 8800 series has excellent IQ, I've been an ATI fan for a long time but nvidia really stepped it up with these cards :)

Maybe because the 8800s got the best IQ ever out of all display cards?....

Not sure about AA, but the 8800s definately has a better AF than any offers from ATI, with better performance too. ;)

With the new DX spec there shouldnt be any IQ degrations from any of the GPU makers.
plus nVIDIA has already introduced new AA modes & superior AF.
all other IQ settings are DX/OpenGL related (i.e. from the dev side).
