Feels like Nvidia has thrown in the towel

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
AMD got TR, Bioshock, now BF4.
TR has issues on Nvidia cards, which got fixed and re-broke with the lastest update.
Bioshock has stuttering issues on Nvidia cards.

The whole reason I went to Nvidia this gen was for the same reason on AMD, games ran better on Nvidia because of stronger developer relations. Man... talk about switching at the worst time.

Honestly Nvidia really seems to have given up on the pc gaming market in favor of tegra and tablets. It is disappointing to see.

This gen NVIDIA is cashing out on GK110 selling to supercomputers/ research.

GK104 is for the unwashed masses. wink.gif I'd rather get a GF110 than a GK104

AMD is really on the ball this gen though.

Gaming Evolved , all the consoles...

They didn't give up. TR is owned by Squeenix which often deals with AMD (See Sleeping Dogs/HItman Abs/DeusEx Rev). Battlefield does great on both, so that's not a problem either. Didn't hear anything about Bioshock, so not sure where that's coming from.

The industry looks to be leaning more towards consoles nowadays, which seems to be dominated by AMD. Figure it would be easier for developers to keep their projects optimized for AMD hardware since consoles are the lead platforms. I'd be lying if I said I didn't see this coming.

Nevertheless, no matter what, AMD hardware will NEVER touch my PC.

Oh look it's one of those threads again! rolleyes.gif

At present yeah, that's how it's looking at the moment, that's why I'm getting a 7970 for my birthday! wink.gif

I was thinking of building a new system with all newer components from whats in my sig rig but the way
things are going with graphics drivers being crap and games starting too be crap also I decided too wait another year or
maybe even 2. and I feel Nvidia is really starting too drop the ball. I have always owned Nvidia cards and
never had issues. currently my system and graphics cards are running perfect but I am tired of rolling the
dice too see which driver will pay off, currently on 314.07 as the newer ones are junk.

Yeah how much money is amd gonna make from selling console chips? I guess just paying the bills if even that... Game evolved titles? How much money does amd give the developers? A lot? They're doing so good they have to sell their products cheaper?

Eh both cards will experience issues with newly released titles, wouldn't make assumption based on a couple of recent releases. Crysis 3 was perfect for both.

Both amd/nvidia users are reporting stuttering with Bioshock (seems to be worse for Nvidia) - the game dev has announced they have identified the issue and will release a patch - its not a nvidia or amd problem.

Don't forget AMD had ridiculous Skyrim/Far cry 3 stuttering issues, and the ongoing Crossfire microstutter issue which AMD have acknowledged and are trying to fix

It all gets fixed eventually - being a pc gamer you need to have patience, you will never own a hardware config which will run everything flawlessly (well not initially anyway)

I noticed at the beginning of the 600/7000 series launch Nvidia started out strong and was beating AMD cards by quite a bit, then it seems Nvidia kinda just sat there while AMD improved drivers, and now, are performing better.

If you really believe this, sell your gpu & go AMD. Then a time will come in the future when you will say the same thing about AMD whistle.gif
The gpu market is a game of leap-frog...That's all it is at the end of the day wink.gif
