Wait, is there a Vid where an NVidia card bursts into flames? This I hafta see if there is. It would make me feel all warm an fuzzy inside. Kinda like one of those VCR fireplace ambience tapes from back in the 80's.

Do they think we are that stupid? OK. Maybe most of us are.
totally agree man!

Well Deadmau, I think it probably wouldn't be something with the mosfets. Maybe you could get the fans to spin up so fast the sheer friction combusted the air!

Only way that card can hang now is to rely on Benches that were made specifically for NVidicaca GPUs'.



What are you talking about? Have you even USED an AMD driver?

I think you mean ATi. That side of things is dead now. I'm pretty sure that the AMD drivers are pretty solid. I've run every last one of them since AMD started cranking them out and they leave ATi drivers in the dust.

Of course AMD also gave us Multithread drivers to allow unused cores on my CPU to carry some of the burden that the GPU normally carries. I'm in 11.2 right now and I haven't heard one person have issues with it. That's not to say that it's perfect, but I don't notice any lag when I'm playin any NVidia games.

Well anyway not to pick a fight but I think you're overcompensating for NVidia. My bad maybe you do use them... but I don't see how you can take a dump on AMD drivers when you have to know how bad ATi drivers were.

Alot of people having trouble with Bad Company 2 on their 5xxx's with newer AMD drivers. Yes. Sabotage the old cards. Heck, a friend of mine on a 5850 had to update his drivers to play Bad Company 2, (it'd hang on loading screen) and now, he's playing BC2, but is unable to play CS 1.6 with OpenGL.

2 out of 2 ATi cards in this house run 11.2 w/o issue. I'm not saying it's this way for everybody. But I haven't seen many people here complain about the AMD drivers. Note that this is a small sampling of ATi/AMD owners. But if I was to guess I would say that 90% of us have no issues. I'm playing a straight up NVidia skewed game at the moment(FarCry 2) and my only problem occurred when I went from DX9 to DX10. Apparently that version of DX10 is pure NVidia driven. Can't even play in DX11 as its not even available which sucks cause DX11 is the shizzle. When I had moved to DX10 the screen looked as though I was looking through frosted glass with someone standing on the other side with a Spotlight behind them. My Frame Rates went right in the toilet. I'd be willing to be your friend had issues similar because those games are specifically written with NVidicaca in mind. Not like there are any other cards in the market. That imho is straight up unfair to anyone that doesn't have an NVidia card. And it's downright illegal as far as I can tell because it makes the consumer feel they HAVE TO buy NVidia. At the very least its an unfair advantage that speaks to collusion. If Bill Gates and Microsoft ever did anything like this they would be in court so fast their heads would still be spinning 10 years later after they left the courtroom.

THIS is why I don't like NVidicaca. And more than HALF of NVidia owners would be whining if any other company on the planet did and got away with what they've been getting away with. You should read an article in the latest PC Gamer. Dude straight up says that NVidia works hand in hand with the Developers like one company working with a mutual supplier is an everyday occurrence in any other competitive market.

I don't know how long this can go on but I hope AMD kicks them in their crotch for this kind of gamesmanship.
