HQV (Test 3)

Test 3: Jaggies Pattern 2

From the HQV manual:

Motion adaptive de-interlacing is just one step in cleaning up scan line artifacts. The video signal processor should also employ directional filtering to catch rapidly moving shapes that may change direction, speed, and angle.

In the second jaggies test, you’ll see a cluster of three equally spaced white bars of the same thickness, rapidly moving up and down between a 5-degree and 35-degree angle. If all three bars appear to have jagged edges at all times, the video processor does not use directional filtering to smooth the images. If all three bars are smooth throughout the test, the video processing earns a passing grade.

Again we see wavy lines, but in this case only on the third bar of the test.  According to the benchmark this gives both ATI and NVIDIA a score of 3 for this test.
