Where is AMD going? - Page 4  

post #31 of 37
Thread Starter 
Wow this thread certainly got away from me. Driver wars, didn't expect that.

Well it sounds like basically no one has any idea abuot the 7xxx series, that makes me sad. Curse you AMD and your Bulldozing!

If AMD has had any "driver issues" recently it has been with crossfire only and not single card set ups. And those issues usually are only with newly released cards. Most of the other "issues" are user error.

I can say in all my years of owning ATI/AMD video cards, i have never had driver issues. The only issues I ever had are because i was 13 and overclocked my 9250 256mb and got artifacting, because i was stupid. For the price vs performance AMD is the way to go, and I had very few driver issues. Now I just bought my new laptop, BRAND new card, 540m, terrible drivers, it can play crysis 2, but it wont even let me navigate the main menu of deadspace 2 semi-smoothly, and every time I run after effects CS5, the card stops responding. Not to mention the difficulties i get with nvidia optimus technology, while I do like it, it can make a lot of things VERY difficult, like getting games to run and whatever, its a very picky thing. Either way. AMD has great drivers IMO.

Oh about that, AMD officially stated that they delayed the release of Bulldozer another 60-90 days. I was waiting for it too... but... I... I betrayed them... but HEY, I'm still spending 250 on their video card. Anyway... enough of y justifications, the 7000 series is rumored to come out around Q3, I assume summer some time, maybe early fall, but I guarantee they want to get the drop on Nvidia and steal some market share like they did with Direct x 11 cards.

I have never had a problem with my past amd/ati video cards but somehow I like NVDIA more.

This needs to be closed. It's flamebait.

Nvidia and AMD are both excellent choices. It's whatever gives you more performance for cheaper at the time of purchase.

I was actually just thinking the same thing.....

We have no clue what AMD's roadmap is currently for future GPU's. Only that they will most likely come out eventually. As such, since the thread has gotten so incredibly off topic (complaining about AMD / ATI driver issues), thread is closed.
