Now I know that it all comes down to popularity and that both of these chip makers leapfrog each other all the time, but I'm bored so I'm asking the community: which GPU chip maker are you a fan of, nVidia or AMD?

Vote in the poll, stress any further opinions below.

Happy voting biggrin.gif.

By the way, my vote goes to nVidia for their attention to detail and all the benefits they give you, their website is full of information. Also, I think their drivers are better.

....Why? Each has their pro's and con's. each Excel in their own respects. Could you at least be more specific about the poll?

Voted. Though I sense this thread could quickly derail. Also, poll should be named "Who are you a fan of?" The term "fanboy" is used as an underhand insult.

There's nothing really specific about my poll, I'd just like to see how popularity compares between the two brands within the community
