Sounds like Intel V Amd..


Nvidia wants to make CPU's too biggrin.gif

I've read that a lot of people have issues with Eyefinity. Was that a motherboard/gpu problem, or is it mostly a driver thing? Also heard (quite a bit) about crossfire minimum frames per second being unplayably low. Could that be a chipset bandwidth issue? Just throwing out stuff I've read. I haven't tried either setup myself.

I gotta go with price as well.

It seems nV works better on i systems than on AMD systems but is still comparable on AMD systems.

There's not currently any magic voodoo that happens between CPU NB/SB and GPU on AMD gear.

Price and ventilation tolerance I think are the only two things AMD has going for it.

Except I also effing hate intel with a powerful vendettic urge.

Anybody who pays manufacturers money to simply not manufacture for their competition needs to burn in the same fiery pits as companies who pay programming groups to treat their video cards preferentially... right beside Tom's Hardware who never turns off CPU physx when comparing graphics cards on intel rigs.

So... a clean conscious, price and temp.

I can't speak from experience but I've heard that the newest drivers have eyefinity working pretty good (comparable to sli) on the 6000 series cards.

Fusion does nothing to your hard drive. It just closes running processes that are not vital to Windows operations. It allows overclocking profiles, but you cannot overclock a HDD. The only setting it changes is enabling HDD cache writing, which makes data transfer more volatile. If there is power loss or a crash, the data in the cache is lost. This setting can be enabled in Windows, but is understandably left off. This way data is written straight to disk, bypassing cache. Read this if interested:

I haven't heard of any issues with Eyefinity, personally. Worked great for me as well. Damn_Smooth; Eyefinity is not comparable to SLI, unless you meant to say Crossfire. Eyefinity is the monitor "ganging" ability built into AMD cards.

There were some driver incompatibilities with certain games that caused Crossfire to perform poorly. Several of those have been fixed, and seem to be fixed fairly quickly after they crop up. Based on driver release notes, some of the problems have been fixed with built-in profiles.

Thank you for the correction. I did mean Crossfire. I'm ashamed of my ignorance now. redface.gif
