This is kind of a weird question. Does our GPU's potentially have the hardware capability to do much more than they already do with driver updates? What I mean is it seems like once a GPU is released and a couple months of driver refinements go by, your hardware is already outdated and the manufacturers are focusing on the next iteration. So is the potential there for our current hardware to be more powerful than it is if they spent more time on tweaking the drivers or are they pretty much at the threshold of what they are capable of? I say this because console are very well optimized for the hardware they have, I know they have an OS specific to gaming and they don't have to deal with DirectX, plus all the games are coded for one specific hardware specification. Nvidia and AMD have to continue to manufacture new cards, I get that, because they can't make money off of drivers. But it feels like the potential is there to do so much more if they weren't releasing new cards as often as they do.
