Hmm. To me, if ATI cared about their customers, especially their top-dollar customers, they'd make sure the money they spent wasn't just going to waste.


What made you think AMD doesn't care? They've gone to great lengths to fix the issues.

Yeah, except their Crossfire was broken for like a year. So glad I went back to Nvidia.


Only a year?
No, crossfire's been broken for a long time. Basically, ever since benchmarks started throwing passable numbers for it.


This. SLI scales tremendously compared to Crossfire. Nvidia cards also have a much better TDP than AMD.

The CPU side is even worse, those new AMD FX9000 CPU's have a TDP of like 220 W.

Yep, same here.

still having driver issues with my 560 ti.
I am afraid to update


I am in the same position. Nvidia, show me some love and fix your drivers.

How is it stability-wise? I've heard nothing but horror stories about the last few official driver releases, did they fix the (supposed) blue-screen/graphical corruption issues?

*edit* - reading the comments it looks like the driver still isn't quite "cooked", I guess I'm going to stick to 314.22 for now - a few FPS here and there isn't worth a stability nightmare.


Ha ha ha! And here everyone complained about AMD drivers and praised Nvidia drivers.

I'm still on 314.22 as well. I haven't heard anything good about Nvidia drivers since.


There's also the problem of distinguishing genuine issues with a driver from people who are running 200 processes/have overheating/overvolting issues etc. that are exacerbated from new driver releases putting more strain on their systems. Still, I'm playing it safe for now, but I wouldn't be surprised if at least some of those issues are due to user error.

SLI has been broken for as nearly as long as CF. People seem to forget these things so quickly.

And no, Nvidia cards do not usually have lower TDP.

There's been issues with the newer drivers? I've been playing games just fine.


That means next to nothing - every card and system is different, just because one driver works fine for you doesn't mean it's bug-free.

Update from 314.22 and after playing a couple of hours of Tomb raider and using firefox with youtube and twitch, I think these work fine.

I haven't changed voltages for my graphics card or done any overclocking that the factory that made card has not done already. I don't run lots of processes or even play gpu intensive games.
I don't even overclock my cpu and left it at default.

Well, Raja did say something about Lucretia being 3 steps ahead of everyone else...that means she's better than Batman, who is only 2 steps ahead.

It really wasn't. It's not like AMD cards just kind of magically broke with the HD7 series, and SLI has been hit or miss since 8000 series.(as apposed to AMD's missmissmissmissmiss)
It didn't take nVidia for the competition to expose just how broken their multi-GPU setup was to start improving on it either.
