Nvidia advantages
Runs cooler
Multi-GPU support is better (less micro stutter and more games supported)
Faster single GPU performance, if you need the fastest (Titan), but terrible price:performance

AMD advantages
Better price to performance ratio
The 7970 beats the 680, so among the second tier it favors AMD
Some games do scale better on Crossfire, although micro stutter is an issue
The "Never Settle" bundles, if you like the games offered
This one is controversial - I find single GPU support better on AMD; Nvidia's drivers seem to have taken a turn for the worse since the 300s came out

Why some people might prefer Radeon cards this generation
- buy a video game bundle and get a free graphics card.

I joke, I joke. I kid, I kid!...kinda




getting hard to keep on passing on the video card deals.

Part of it is going to be past experience. If someone bought an nvidia card and had loads of driver issues then they'll probably avoid them in the future. If someone bought an AMD card and had a good experience then they are more likely to choose one again on the basis that they would like a nice experience again.

I haven't had a bad experience with either, although I would be swayed towards nvidia based on drivers, especially for linux.

Thats the major thing in the past amd has had some bad drivers that caused some users a bad experience then those users never come back to amd but without even knowing they will always bring up bad drivers. Without researching and seeing that amd has fixed or are fixing all driver problems now days id say single cards drivers arent to far apart NV does have the better muti card drivers but that could/will change in june/july with the new driver.

If you mean...."Why do SOME people prefer Radeon graphics card over that of Nvidia's?" then i suppose that one answer would be that you can usually get much better bang for buck with AMD GPU'.
