ATi 5000 Series Image Quality Analysis
This article is part three of a trilogy of articles devoted to the Juniper/Cypress series. In part one I covered performance. Part two covered bottlenecking and determined the 5770’s primary limitation isn’t memory bandwidth as many believed.
This article will investigate the 5770’s image quality and focus on anisotropic filtering and super-sampling. The system setup and methodology is exactly the same as in part one.
While the primary purpose of this article is to investigate the 5770’s image quality, the inevitable comparison to nVidia (GTX285) will also be made as required. For a refresher concerning image quality, please see the following articles I’ve written on the subject in the past:
Everything in those articles about ATi’s 2xxx/3xxx/4xxx series applies to the 5770, minus any differences covered in this article.
