I wasn't willing to wait another month without playing Overwatch to what I felt was my maximum possible potential, considering that this competitive season ends on August 18 and won't be back for months, and beyond half a year for the next one to end.
Got a Fury, 20% slower but smoother, after optimizing my system I have less than 3us average when I had 50us without Nvidia's Hotfix on my 1070 and 15us with the Hotfix, now I'm slowly climbing he steps to top 500 now, hopefully.
Besides, isn't "waiting" the excuse AMD fanboys use to say AMD cards are better because of driver improvements? That has no place with Nvidia, so I've heard.
