I recently swapped my cards so I had the opportunity to test 9500GT and HD4650. I did the image comparison for my own personal use, but decided to share as it may help some users.

Test Setup (NVIDIA):

  • Display: Dell 2209WA (1680 x 1050)
  • Source: Merighi DVD Test (PAL)
  • GPU/Driver: NVIDIA 9500GT (Release 195)
  • Operating System: Windows 7 Pro (64-bit)
  • NVIDIA Control Panel Settings: Default Player Settings (Inverse Telicine - Disabled)

Test Setup (NVIDIA):

  • Display: Dell 2209WA (1680 x 1050)
  • Source: Merighi DVD Test (PAL)
  • GPU/Driver: ATI HD4650 (Catalyst 9.12)
  • Operating System: Windows 7 Pro (64-bit)
  • CCC Settings: Preset - Standard, Basic Color - Default, Advanced Color - Disabled, Basic Quality - Automatic De-interlacing (Vector Adaptive), Pulldown Detection - Disabled, Advanced Quality - Disabled and Dynamic Contrast - Disabled.

Player Details:
  • DVD Player: MPC-HC (32-bit)
  • MPEG Codec: Microsoft MPEG-2 Decoder with DXVA
  • Render Mode: EVR

Ultimately, the ATI HD4650 produced superior definition with minimal artifacts and it would seem ATI has finally fixed the aggravating black level issue but only on Windows 7 (sadly).
