Someone spending some 100 bucks on a new card problably doesn't want to play without anisotropic filtering. One should also know that the 16x AF mode in the G70 chip, as well as the NV40 chip, renders some areas with 2x AF at maximum, even though consistent 4x maximum AF would be far more helpful to produce detailled textures for the entire image. 16x AF naturally doesn't mean to have every texture sampled with 16x AF for the entire image, it depends on the degree of distortion of the resampled texture. But for some angles, even a 16:1-distortion gets only 2x AF, resulting in blurry textures there.
The Inquirer rapproterar att en ny drivrutin från Nvidia ska fixa det här problemet. Drivrutinen åtgärdar även vissa buggar. Versionen är 78.03 och lär dyka upp inom några veckor.
