No. Not true.
It's almost impossible to tell a difference in picture quality between Intel or AMD.
Or Nvidia or Radeon (ATI/AMD)
The difference is only perception of what people want to believe.
And none of them do 24p perfectly- and it does not matter.
The 24p bug is mostly a made up fabrication of AVS nutjobs looking for something to bicker about on the most semantic and nitty gritty level technically possible.
really- it's totally a non issue.
if your choosing AMD or Intel or Nvidia or Radeon over the others for "picture quality" your a fool. There is no perceivable difference.
I have Intel graphics, Nvidia, AMD, and even upper level dual Radeon gaming cards. None of them look any different playing a movie at 720p or 1080p over HDMI.
I prefer AMD. I used to be a fanboy. But reality is Intel products are now better in performance and value. The idea AMD is cheaper is now a myth so lately I have been Intel more.
On video cards- Radeon does have an advantage in price/performance so I tend to go that direction for gaming.
I can't even tell if I miss a frame every 5000 frames- there is tons more to worry about in HTPC than that.
24p bug amazes me. People worry about such trivial things- over important noticeable things like speed of system, ease of use... and general overall experience using the product daily.
To me- how it works- how easy it is- how well it performs is more important. It's "real" and in front of me daily.
24p bug- or not- It don't seem to bother me much.
So if Intel is better performance and value and more power efficient- I go with that.
