Nvidia Improved the performance.

Now lets take a look at latest AMD Drivers.

All i see is FIXING issues and after every driver making half more issues.

I'm not so sure how this compairison matters. First: fixing issues is improving performance, generally either could be stated in terms of the other. Second: AMD has been having some difficulty getting current games to play optimally on their latest cards, but I'm not so sure that they failed. Personally, I've never had such troubles (but then again I've never used the HD7xxx series)

I have noticed the same thing OP has noticed, but it appears AMD isn't putting much FPS improvements on the paper anymore, yet the drivers do increase performance every once in a while. smile.gif
