DTM is not the only place that Envy appears behind.I will be putting the Lumagen against a Pro very soon.
And not only will I be sitting on my sofa, I am going to pixel peep both and post what they are really doing close up.
People need to understand that the tone mapping has not been TOUCHED in over one year, it was put on hold so the Envy GUI and such could be implemented, word is, that is very nearly finally done and Mathias will be back on board the tone mapping, there is a list of things we are going to look at. Its no surpise the Lumagen in that time has caught right up. Well done to them! But dont think that MadVR is about to lie down on the railroad tracks.
The scope of the comparison tends to focus on scaling and DTM, but I submit that company viability both financially and operationally should be included. That it has taken so long for Envy to release product may or may not indicate issues relative thereto, but it warrants consideration.
Furthermore, cost of each unit is real, and factors into relative valuations.
The Lumagen team has proven its business and technical prowess long term, while Envy is just getting started as a business. Of course, Envy, via madVR, has established long term technical prowess.
