Re: Lower detail distance for ATI cards?
Looking at the pictures from the reviews, it seems it has to do with quality. It is all seemingly at 1200 because its not just bushes and things like that.
In the digit life shots, look at the roofs. There are antennaes and other things which show to be fainter than in the 7800gtx.
Now yes, the AA is a little better but you are correct in that the shots seem to be off with some of the items.
On the flip side the current cat's seem to be rendering everything perfectly so this is pointing to the beta cat's. Seems that they have an issue.
Your shots that you included for the x850 don't match what I see so I don't understand what that is all about.
