Graphical Comparisons - AMD vs Nvidia
Ever since the GPU wars began between AMD and Nvidia there have always been those who believe that one side or the other have forced the game to give inferior graphics to give the game a higher framerate. While most of the time visual differences are minor or non existent, it is always worth checking to see if one side or the other has altered the visuals for a performance advantage.
In this set of screenshots we can see a difference between AMD and Nvidia, most notably when it comes to Fog and smoke, on the Nvidia side we can see much more fog over the river area while on AMD they are clearly visible, but on Nvidia we can see that when using the same settings as AMD the smoke coming from buildings and chimneys are much more transparent on the Nvidia side.
When Nvidia's exclusive GameWorks Fog and Smoke are enabled it looks much more like the smoke on AMD GPUs, which makes me think that the fog should look like that in the first place on all sides.
On AMD we can also see more detail and shadows on the water, though it is hard to tell if the due to the slight fog on the Nvidia screenshots, or because AMD's has more detail in the first place.
When we move to the city below we can see that there is very little difference that can be seen between the AMD and Nvidia's GPUs.
Even when looking at the fog and smoke in these screenshots we can see that both look identical on both AMD and Nvidia setups, which makes the observations when high up over the city all the more apparent.
