- ATI's filtering tricks


Ever wonder how ATI manages to squeeze all that performance out of their GPU's? has an interesting article up that discusses different filtering techniqes used by ATI.


ATI have traditionally cut corners in the texture filtering department. Take, for instance, R200 (Radeon 8500): on the one hand quite sophisticated - for its time - pixel shading, support for overbright lighting (and apparently increased internal color precision), on the other hand there are disadvantages when it comes to texture filtering, in particular when using anisotropic filtering ("AF").
