NES RGB Comparison
This page shows picture examples of what the NES looks like after being modded with a PC-10 RGB PPU. The pictures demonstrate two things:
- Difference in picture quality between composite video and RGB.
- Difference in color palette between the PlayChoice-10 RGB chips and the original NES color palette.
Please see the PC-10 page for an explanation of why there are differences.
Please note: Not all RGB methods use the different color palette, only the PC-10. Some can
actually switch between the original composite video colors, the PC-10 colors and an "enhanced"
palette (see the the NES HDMI / RGB mods page for more details).
As always, I made sure the pictures truly represented the image on the screen, so you can see the best examples
possible. One other thing to note is I used an RGB monitor as the display. The monitor makes the
composite video output of the NES look a million times better than a regular TV, so the pictures show the best of
both worlds! Click on each for full-sized versions:
Also, here's a video SensatoKuro made that shows the differences between each of the color palettes offered by the
NESRGB. It's a great way to see the differences in real-time (make sure to watch in HD):
