Default ATI's latest Catalyst driver reduces IQ for performance boost?

source XS.org:
google translations from german to english are a nightmare... the pics speak for themselves, despite setting anisotropic 16x filtering in catalyst control panel or in the game itself, atis latest catalyst drivers actually force a mix of bi linear and tri linear texture filtering, resulting in a few percent performance boost, but flickering and blurred textures. welcome back PRE quake3 texture filtering! its been a while!

I like the fact that the article compares the ATI card with Catalyst AI turned on to NVIDIA cards at the highest quality settings. Turn of Catalyst AI and *bingo*, image quality returns to normal. This has been the same situation since they introduced the feature.
