When printing a report from syncfusion report viewer, the output is low quality,

when the exact same report is printed from ms report viewer the quality is great!

I attached both examples to demonstrate the difference, both are created via Microsoft Print To PDF, one is from syncfusion's report viewer, the other is from ms report viewer!

How can I print from syncfusion's report viewer in high quality?

Hi Ahmed, 
We are converting the rendered items as images that is given as input to the printer and normal 96 dpi are used in image conversion, so that the pixel problem occurred in pdf printed document. We have already exposed properties to increase the dpi values in ReportViewer, you can set the values as shown in below snippet to improve the print quality. 
reportViewer.PrintdpiY = 300; 
reportViewer.PrintdpiX = 300;
