Did you reset to defaults before copying it into madVR's directory?

Those are reasonable settings for lower quality content, I might use something like that.

But really, as huhn said, if you like how it looks it is correct. I change what I use for all sorts of reasons and there are always sources or even displays that look better with weird options.

Trust your eyes, especially true with that page.

I just like that, only rendering is 38ms, is not it high?
how can I lower it without having negative reflections on the obtained images?

i.e. set NGU chroma doubling to medium and test if you see any differences.
This whole madVR thing will not work for you if you keep on asking without testing yourself.

I'm playing around with NGU options and see that there are NGU Soft/Standards/Sharp, each of them comes with qualities Low/Medium/High/Very High.
So, I wonder what exactly the differences applied for them, eg. between NGU Sharp/Low and NGU Standard/High ? I know experiments count but would like to know the differences but haven't found explanations.

The technical differences in the quality levels are known only to madshi but they are probably something like number of neurons used, a pure speed v.s. quality trade-off. The quality levels don't really change the sharpness, they change the precision of the predictions.

The differences between Soft, Standard, Sharp, and AA are differences in the algorithms themselves, for example Sharp is very sharp at all quality levels and AA is softer and anti-aliases well at all quality levels. Normal and Soft are simply less sharp versions of the Sharp algorithm while AA behaves slightly differently. AA does not have a direct quadrupling mode and shifts the image very slightly up and to the left. Performance is similar between them all, with the exception that direct quadrupling is faster than doubling twice.

Thanks, so to make it simple if sharp image is my taste, I'll ignore others and just use NGU Sharp with highest possible quality level that my GPU can deal with ?

Exactly, simply pick an algorithm you like and then tune quality to account for GPU or different resolutions.
