Moreover, the difference between the reference image and an IHV's output can be caused by varying precisions. Even the CPU can be using lower precision.
The style of the article was very unprofessional and sensationalist.
its quite Ironic isnt it?
that now the Reference SHots are not reliable ,but they were in the past used to demostrate that Nvidia was lowering the IQ.
