That doesn't sound like anything new...

ATI's texture filtering has been crap for as long as I can remember. That was one of the first things I noticed when I got my 9700 Pro... the FSAA was better, especially at 2X, but the texture filtering just plain sucked.

And when I upgraded to the FX 5900U I realized that I'd forgotten what properly filtered textures looked like!

Mike,

what does his posting history, IHV likes/dislikes have to do with his point, which is a varry valid one. Fanboys will alway swtich to defend their favorite IHV often doing 180s to support their side. Its just human nature...

It's as "valid" a point as saying 2+2=4. Duh. Sure, it's true that fanboys will be fanboys but considering the source, well c'mon.

Yeah, that was what I was thinking. No matter how it turns out, seeing some of the more supposedly "un-biased" people squirm has been kind of fun. Makes you wonder how "un-biased" they really are though.

There are freaking no seeds for this torrent, it's useless if no one is seeding!
