What's new this month
Added galleries for Radeon X1800 cards.
Added GeForce screenshots made using NVIDIA's new official 81.85 and official beta 81.87 drivers (by the way, the FW flood is becoming really annoying; if it continues the same in November, we will make a break in GeForce cards benchmarking until the beginning of the new year).
Since October starts Q4, we've updated Radeon X850 galleries.
The following graphics cards were used to make the Quality Control section:
Besides, the following cards have been tested before:
Galleries are updated a) in case of new patches introducing noticeable changes to rendering quality; and b) accordingly with new drivers releases. In the first case we remake the gallery for all drivers anew.
Considering that ATI releases new, but rather similar drivers every month, we perform quality control for ATI graphics cards on each first month of the quarter (January, April, July and October).
In case of NVIDIA we examine just new official drivers which also happens about once in three months.
Anyway, we reserve the right to examine drivers, official or leaked, out of turn, if we are just interested in it.
