We recently told you (http://www.vizworld.com/2010/11/nvidia-points-finger-amds-image-quality-cheat/) about how Nvidia was claiming that AMD was cheating on their image quality in order to improve on their performance. The fine folks over at Guru3D (http://www.guru3d.com/article/exploring-ati-image-quality-optimizations/)have taken a look at dispute, and ask the question: Is it a cheat or a valid optimization if most people cannot tell the difference? Personally, I think ATI should have left the optimization turned off by default.

The optimization can be seen, it really is visible image quality degradation. But here‚??s the dilemma, it remains difficult to spot if you do not know exactly what you are looking for. Would this question not have been raised then 99.99% of you guys would have never noticed it.
