ICAT – NVIDIA’s Image Comparison Analysis Tool updated to 0.6.1 version
Media comparison tool made easy and free.
In 2021, NVIDIA introduced the first version of ICAT, a specialized software for enthusiasts, reviewers, and gamers seeking to find disparities between two media files. In contrast to relying on basic Windows utilities, this free application offers side-by-side or split-screen comparisons of images and videos. The program can compare multiple files at once. I already tried 24, but at that point, it became difficult to use.
For gamers who want to check if they should play using DLSS, FSR or XeSS, this software may prove invaluable in today’s landscape, particularly when assessing the quality of these upscaling technologies. Of course, images do not always do it justice; hence it supports video files as well, and users can skip individual frames for a very comprehensive analysis.
The tool has just received an update that enhances video playback and addresses several issues. This update serves as a timely reminder of the tool’s availability and its noteworthy features.

The embedding option is a frequently overlooked tool. With just a few clicks, users can compile a comprehensive package suitable for hosting on a website. This package can include direct links to the images or be hosted alongside the package itself.
The ICAT software supports various media formats, including JPEG, PNG and WEBP images. The video formats supported are MP4 and WEBM.
