How legitimate is this article?

I posted this on the Xbox one board, I figured people would understand what I'm talking about better here.

http://www.dualshockers.com/2013/10/08/battlefield-4-on-ps4-and-xbox-one-a-simulation-of-how-it-should-look-at-900p-and-720p/

Saying there's hardly a difference between 720p and 900p, it says there's almost no difference at all. I think it's kind of suspicious, putting two pictures of different quality together like that to be displayed at the same resolution. Reviewtechusa made a video about it too.

I did some math...
The 900p parts are 900 pixels long
The 720p parts are 720 pixels long
The screenshot is 1080 pixels long

1080/900=1.2
1080/720=1.5

Which means the 900p parts were stretched 120%, while 720p parts were stretched 150%. They were still both stretched though, just the higher res one to a lesser extent, which means the resolution is inconsistant in both, just lesser in 900p parts. I call bulls***.

I mean, they are saying there is no difference between 720p and 900p, even though I can see pixels in both.

I feel like some journalist went into paint, cropped the images and put them together not having any idea how the program would handle the resolution, and then wrote an article saying "hey look there's actually no difference between 720p and 900p just look at these"

Did you even read the article? Consoles upscale to 1080p while their native resolutions are 720p and 900p each.

they're both crappy rescales using a crappy bilinear filter (not even bicubic lol)

also what kokuei said, it all gets upscaled to 1080p in the end, so wysiwyg

there is undoubtedly more detail in the 900p, but they both get mangled by the horrible upscaling

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

both of them are so far away from native the differences aren't really worth mentioning

K. Thought I was missing something.
