Over at an E3 Nvidia wanted to remind journalists, fans, and gamers that it has game image sharpening tools and latency reduction functionality available within the GeForce settings, which it believes offer some parity with AMD’s latest technologies.
“So AMD introduced a couple things we read about and heard about,” Tony Tamasi, VP of technical marketing, says. “Radeon Image Sharpening and FidelityFX…. So we, of course, have similar techniques, for quite some time. Freestyle about a year and a half ago. It has a large number of filters, which includes things like sharpening and colour correction. If people find sharpening by itself particularly cool and valuable, we can kind of invest in that. But we’ve had that kind of functionality in Freestyle, with a bunch of other post processing effects, developed for quite some time.
“The other thing they talked about was Radeon Anti-lag. I haven’t got a particular good explanation about what’s going on with its CPU/GPU load balancing to reduce latency. That can mean a lot of things to be honest…. We’ve had some stuff for reducing latency, lag, whatever you want to call it, for quite some time. If you look at our control panel, this has been around for more than a decade.”
