Actually, it's the opposite. Modern monitors usually have smaller pixels, so it's now more difficult to see the differences in demosaicing algorithms without going to higher-than-100% magnifications.

100% would be enough.

"Would be enough" is very different than what you previously stated - "There's nothing more beyond and below 100%". This makes what you say subjective rather than objective, and in line with this, others could say that for them 50% magnification "would be enough" (or alternatively, they might just use completely different methods to estimate image quality, ones that go beyond human visual scrutiny).

Besides, the differences between the algorithms used today by the better raw developing apps yield very little difference in detail. I test them all the time. Raw developing is very mature and pretty much maxed out at this point.

Unless something changed significantly in the last year, I'd expect the differences between different demosaicing algorithms to be as easily visible at 400% as the difference between a good lens and and superb lens ...when both are set to optimum aperture
