nvidia has not misled... has made this decision stating the reasons ... you may decide that this restriction is ok or if you do not like don't buy it... very simple
I think everyone makes mistakes once in a while....the problem was quickly detected and rectified ... cards killed by driver have been replaced
I have to remind you how many 7850/70 with manufacturing defect have been distributed
the important thing is not to make mistakes on purpose or lead to wrong ... I guess someone feels angry but everything I've written before is well documented and demonstrable.
The GTX 680 lightning is a very expensive exception to the rule, by the way. I would hardly call that the norm. You also forgot to mention about how the GTX 570 and 590 had subpar power regulation that caused the cards to self-detonate on themselves. It wasn't just the software that was the issue. There were very real hardware issues too.
I'd also like to see you prove some of the stuff you've talked about in your previous post. Most of that is unsubstantiated rumors that you seem to believe are facts. There are a couple different options in AMD's driver set that allow you to set the level of tessellation, but you can set it so that tessellation levels are the default level set by the game. You can also set it so that the levels of tessellation far outweigh what the game was supposed to have too.
Keep ragging on AMD and see where it gets you. There's a million things that can be said about nvidia too.Edited by Mad Pistol - 12/10/12 at 3:41pm
