Mac Radeon Screen Shot Gallery
1:58 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

To accompany our review of the ATI Radeon Mac Edition AGP we've created a screen shot gallery of popular 3D titles. Since the purpose of this gallery is not to show off the games themselves but how well the card renders them, we have provided versions of the shots in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format. PNG is a lossless 24-bit compression method which doesn't degrade the image quality the way JPEG does, so you can see every detail. The downside to this method is that the files are much larger, some over 600k. To view PNG files you just need a 4.5 or greater version browser (IE 5 is perfect) and Apple's QuickTime 4.0 installed.


As an addendum to the review itself, we have discovered that turning on 32-bit textures in RAVE fixes the image corruption problem we experienced with Unreal Tournament; as you will see from the screen shots, it also makes the game look pretty darn amazing, and with no frame rate penalty. Note that 32-bit textures WILL cause a speed drop on Rage 128 (not Pro) and below video cards, and only works in RAVE. The instructions on enabling this feature are in the ReadMe file for Unreal Tournament version 425a (required.)


Be sure and check out the screen shot gallery, and we definitely recommend looking at the PNG versions of the shots, even though the download time might be somewhat painful. The difference between the quality of these shots and the JPEG versions is quite obvious.
