New Blue Mars Client: Very High Rendering Abilities are a Big Upgrade

On August 27, Blue Mars rolled out a new client that offers considerable improvements in a number of areas including avatar interface and graphics capabilities. The one I like is the new "very high" rendering quality option. Visualization on my HP Pavilion 7 laptop improved dramatically even though it is  not a high end device (it has an ATI 4630 512k card-- really upper mid range and not truly high end). 

I had just downloaded the new client and took a fast trip to New Venice. Here are some quick images that have not been processed to show the new look of Blue Mars at a higher and cleaner resolution.  It makes me want to go out right now and buy a new high end gaming computer to really see how Blue Mars can look, something which my recession budget will not allow.

Blue Mars will celebrate the first birthday of its Beta release on September 2 and I will have additional coverage then.
