We'll see how they go, but if AMD don't get their act together with drivers then I'm probably gonna get an Nvidia card next time round! The last Nvidia card I had was a 8800GTX which is a bit of a legend in my opinion, I had 2 in SLI actually. I remember being really impressed with quite a few of the driver updates, really seeing significant improvements with them. I can only think of a few occasions where AMD drivers have given me that same feeling and I've nearly always used AMD cards in all the years I've been doing this... As for this 6950/70, it was only 11.11c/12.1 drivers that I've seen any noticable improvements with. Anyway enough ranting - back to Max Payne 3
I feel the same way, AMD GPU drivers get "performance" updates once. With Nvidia it is every other month with games seeing improvements up to 20% lol Big difference, easier install/un-install, Nvidia inspector, hell recent Nvidia drivers just gave a huge boost to my wifes 460.... Like a bunch of monkeys in clown suites over at AMD in the driver department since Good ole Rory stepped into play. I was really starting to beleive they were going forward there with drivers after the 11.x series...But now, nope, lost faith
Now all Nvidia needs to do is stop locking voltage control
I hope the 7xx/8xx gen cards don't get voltage locked.
