Needs more description explanation and list of artifacts, if possible, with pictures.
Artefact or Artifact
- It appears that you're wrong. Beeswaxcandle says it should be spelled artefact because it is not an object. I initially wrote the article as Artifact but he/she specifically corrected it.
- I don't know exactly what to believe because on the internet you find both uses.
Illustrative picture added (and removed)
I just removed this picture that just got added. The picture, mislabelled as portraying screen tearing, shows a redrawing problem, most probably due to poor video drivers, or excessive CPU utilization in the computer interferring with the correct updating of the screen. --uKER (talk) 07:13, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
- Well, this is a bug with Windows XP, and certain programs do show such artifacts. It is screen-tearing because it is indeed, newer displayed frames overlapping the older. Added back. Discuss changes before removal. -- Tom Jenkins (reply) 01:15, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
- Well, anyone who read the related article could realize this is certainly NOT screen tearing, which originates when frame generation is out of sync with the display's refresh, causing screen draws to draw information from different frames. BTW, although some people have it as a practice, there's no "discuss changes before removal" rule in Wikipedia. --uKER (talk) 01:30, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
