There was an update at some point around Leopard or SL that improved image quality, but I don't think Apple has touched it since.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Just googled it a bit. Yes, the Leopard DVD player had an improved upscaling algorithm. I remember it as being a quite big improvement.
