to be fair, it was like two cards that got damaged wasnt it? i ran those drivers just fine, no problems at all.

There's issues on both sides, most definitely but in most cases it's just the fanboys blowing it out of proportion.

Whenever I hear someone say "Amds drivers are better then Nvidia's" I instantly think back to my 3870X2's, 4870X2, 4770s in Crossfire, 5870s in Quad crossfire and 7970s in quad crossfire and realize the person saying it has no freaking idea what the hell he's talking about

Tell that to those whose GPU's went bang.

Its very strange to me how some can defend this whole thing and be comfortable in their own skin, its what i just don't get about Nvidia loyalists, Nvidia can never ever do them wrong, even while you are bent over infront of them while they are thrusting hard from behind, very strange.

No wonder Nvidia behave like that.

When it comes to drivers they are more or less the same. especially recently.
Nvidia released drivers a few times that kill cards, on the other hand AMD with anything lower than 13.2 even single cards suffered from microstutter and frametime issues, and I am speaking from experience wink.gif .
With 13.2+ AMD drivers have been good for me, save for the annoying freeze in sleep mode and Resident Evil 4 (old DX9 game) lags in some parts.
It is safe to say with 13.2+ AMD has improved its drivers much better when compared to 12.11 or less. In terms of gaming quality and experience they are as good as Nvidia's when it comes to single GPUs.

In 10 years of owning GPUs, I never had driver issues with over 10 GPUs from Nvidia and ATI.

 
Man I am lucky. :)
 
If I encountered an issue it was extremely minor and negligable.

Many of (not all) of them were refused RAM's because the warranty was in some way void or just lapsed, it was dependent on the board partner.

No wonder Nvidia behave like that.

People had problems with those drivers, I for one included, but my video card didn't catch fire or blow up inside my rig. There was one game that gave me artifacts and occasionally hard froze or BSOD. I think you are blowing the driver problem out of proportion. There were a few instances, if it serves me correctly maybe like one or two at most when damage was actually done to video cards and I'm also pretty sure they were older model cards.

Much of it was just propaganda spread, probably by AMD fans. The drivers may have had issues with BSOD's, hard freezes, and some artifacts but that by no means translates to it destroying peoples' cards. I went back to the old drivers as soon as I started seeing artifacts even at stock clocks. I'm pretty sure anyone with half a brain would know to do the same if they found this to be true for their card. There were also plenty of people who had no problems at all with those drivers. Just something to think about before you go on a rampant bad-mouthing spree against "loyalist nVidia fans."
