oh really?!?! can you explain how my EVGA 670 (sold already) rewarded me with troublesome drivers AND artifacted like crazy in some games!??! stock, no OC?!?!

and why i bought 3 different XFX cards and NOT A SINGLE 1 gave me any troubles at all, including me, my girlfriend wich its the best person at screwing new windows install no matter what (coming from a 550ti), and 1 friend that just like to burn/brick hardware almost entirely for the fun of see the moment when it gives up?!?! (coming from a 580)

Actually, speaking as a current vendor (myself)...I avoid XFX more than I avoid ASUS.

Just because you haven't had a problem (yet) doesn't make you the majority...It also means you've never dealt with their CS Dept...Which, for all intents and purposes, I rate significantly lower (if this was possible) than ASUS's.

So, he's not talking crap from his behind...FYI.

Off-Topic but whatever: Sigi has an email not associated with a webpage? So just a empty domain? Sad Panda. Where is the vendor stuff then =)

Please please please make AMD cards, EVGA! I think that EVGA will make a killing if they switched to AMD, as all the people who used to be nVidia fans before all this 6xx voltage locking crap, will switch with them. thumb.gif

If that happens, EVGA will probably put all the other companies such as HIS, Powercolor and XFX out of business.

EVGA will get their allocation by nvidia cut if they produce AMD cards. This has happened to other vendors that produce both AMD and nvidia cards. Nvidia are pretty shameless with such tactics.

Yup....but at least MSi still sells AMD cards.

It should be clear to those who read the entire article:

Nvidia does not care about you gamers and enthusiasts. Their money is in their Teslas and Quadros.

I cant see that happening till AMD has something that can almost counter every Nvidia perks(so that means amd would have to work more on their 3d, have something similar to physx, have an answer to adaptive vsync, get more businesses to use gpgpu over cuda in their programming) and till then I don't see nvidia having to change their stance for awhile, as nvidia users will defend those perks and stay green.
You talk about marketing ploys, but what you don't realize is that adaptive vsync and physx ARE ploys, not features.

Particularly, adaptive vsync is strictly inferior to modern implementations of normal vsync. The supposed downclock from 60 Hz to 30 Hz DOES NOT happen anymore in practically any game released in the last decade. It is a myth. Meanwhile, adaptive vsync actually introduces stutter when it switches, introducing the very problem it supposedly corrects.
