In Mac OS 8 and 9 this feature was called CloseView. In OSX it is called Zoom.

Do you use any third-party drawing apps? Sometimes these can crossover and affect the main OS. Check all your settings especially any smoothing, make sure its turned on if you do have these types of programs and check the OSX Zoom and main display settings for smoothing.
