Honestly, not really. Of course the hardcore crowd will tell you their worlds apart.

However there is a difference between PC and Console. On some games there isn't much as it's a straight port. However a game like The Witcher 2 or Crysis 1 there are massive differences.

It depends on the game. For Crysis 1, there is a massive difference between high and very high.

Normally medium to high is where the largest jump is. Youtube is bad for comparisons though.

If I look hard enough, probably. But I wouldn't when moving around in a game and I'd rather go high with fluid frames than ultra being stuttery.

Crysis had a huge difference between High and Very High (Ultra)
And the most noticible thing was God Rays/Volumetric Lighting and Bump Mapping.

I notice the difference in games like Witcher 2 and Crysis/Warhead.
