I don't think there is anything left for Nvidia to improve. It seems they give max performance out the gate while AMD cards are capable of more.

Looking at FLops. AMD cards always have more Flops than the Nvidia competition. Maybe the drivers tap into those extra Flops over time.

I feel like DX11 driver for Nvidia and Pascal being very similar to Maxwell there is not much to improve architecture wise.

Don't worry, nVidia buyers will ignore this and how AMD last much longer and enable HJH to buy another wardrobe of leather jackets.


When Vista was released about 50% of all crashes and BSOD's were caused by AMD and nVidia drivers, with the majority being nVidia's fault.



And yes that water.

I can count the number of bad drivers ATI/AMD had for me on one hand.

I had a HD 5850 that ran flawless for years on my PC and still does on my parent's.

Linux drivers on the other hand were and still are utter and absolute garbage and this is a universal consensus.

It's incredible how you guys can't let it go, and keep going back to it, really...

Intel drivers look remarkably stable given how prominent Intel's marketshare is.

Can you extrapolate the point I'm making?

Intel drivers are great for the most part. I'm not sure what you are getting at.

Prevalence of driver related faults will always be influenced by the marketshare of the hardware.

Vista usage (and thus faults) was heaviest around the time period of Nvidia's 8000 series products; a time when Nvidia's marketshare transitioned to nearly double ATI's after having trailed for many years.

It's no surprise that NV driver faults were so much higher than ATI driver faults, when you consider that most enthusiasts (the ones not just casually doodling on PCs but rather playing BF2 and CSS on their 8800GTs etc.) had NV cards and drivers running in their systems.

Raw pie charts like this often erode the context which helps to tell the story. I'm not saying NV drivers were or weren't trash at the time; it just makes sense to try and explain why things might have occurred like they did.
