Interessante informatie uit een eerdere post (de eer is dus niet aan mij). Wilde het jullie niet onthouden:
Forgive me for what I'm about to say, but I think it deserves to be said...
I grabbed these drivers as soon as they were released, as I was interested in seeing the result. I recall hearing that you would be modding these drivers a couple of weeks ago, and my suspicions turned out to be correct.
I realize that one can make the argument that LOD can give the illusion of increasing texture detail; however, it also _introduces_ serious texture aliasing...and this is precisely what these drivers do.
I really hate to rain on anybodys parade, especially if you have somebody that spends their own free time providing something which is viewed as a community service...But, I was frankly shocked @ how ridiculous the artifacts were with these drivers. Sure, if all you did were to compare static screenshots to the nVidia drivers, these would _appear_ to have higher IQ...But, at the end of the day, they have _way_ too much aliasing, and the default LOD setting is far too aggressive.
If you were reset the LOD, you would end up with virtually equal IQ to nVidia's default drivers.
With that said, it must be understood that OpenGL has a definitive method in calculating LOD. When you significantly deviate from this by tinkering with the LOD bias, you're going to end up creating significant errors. I have talked with nVidia engineers about this very issue, and I have yet to talk to anybody who believes that this setting should ever be altered (it's amazing they even provided it in the registry).
Anyhow, the result is obvious...When you look @ the images produced with these drivers, the amount of distortion is so severe, that it becomes prohibitive to use. I have no earthly idea what some people are looking @ when they claim that these drivers rock....Perhaps they're not focusing on the distorted side-effect(s) ? I have no idea. All I can say is that the LOD setting is _way_ too aggressive, and the combination of distortion/aliasing and/or moire patterns is beyond significant.
