    Yes there are, that you haven't necessarily had problems doesn't mean other people haven't

    The exact same thing can be said for nvidia drivers (assuming you mean ATI's stigma for making bad drivers). I've had nothing but serious trouble dealing with nvidia.

    Symptoms:
    - L4D borked for a while with 'big bang' drivers
    - System would lock, and graphical corruption ensues (source games)
    - Upon quiting to desktop, doing anything causes 100% CPU and the OS will freeze (mouse still able to move) for 10+ seconds

    Intel's atom is a terrible chip.

    I mean both, as per the quote:

    If you ask me, and this is just my humble opinion, it's nonsense to disregard other people's problems with company X's hardware/software on the sole basis that you haven't experienced those problems yourself.

    For the record yeah ATI software was a nightmare for me, but life's too short to go on about it on a forum forever, if it doesn't work don't use it - get something else and move on.

    If that doesn't work either? Buy a console

    Luckily I've never had problems with either of their drivers. The thing that scares me away from ATI cards if there is a roughly equivalent nVidia part is ATI's lackluster board partners. I wish EVGA would start making ATI cards.

    ....Anyway I hope ATI's next gen is even more of a success than the 48xx series!

    Depends on what they change architecturally if anything. It's really hard to guess because they could theoretically put out a DX11 compliant part with small tweaks to RV770. Or they could do a full overhaul, it's just hard to read AMD right now.

    On the other hand, Nvidia isn't shy about publicizing its priorities so we can probably expect them to spend/waste/invest even more transistors on general computing this time around. What that means for die size and performance comparisons is anyone's guess.

    So in the end we should all abandon Nvidia, AMD and Intel and go for VIA hardware

    Never have any problem with Nvidia or ATI on hardware or software wise. Bang for the bucks still the main point for me.

    There's a difference between:

    "I've had problems with ATI/nVidia drivers, some of which weren't solved while I had the graphics card".
    ^^^ Plausible, right? Happened to me with both nVidia and ATI cards.

    and


    "ATI/nVidia drivers suckz0rs!!! I had two gazillion driver BUGZZ per second with ATI/nVidia cards and when I changed to nVidia/ATI everything got PEEERFECT! Zero BUGZ! And performance went up 2000%, the weather got better, my car suddenly has 200hp more than before and my girlfriend likes my sexual performance again!!!"
    ^^^ Unfortunately, this what you see more often in forums..
    Mojo stands for Compute Power!
    No need for powerfull CPUs or GPUs anymore. All you need is Mojo!

    Would be nice to see. The 9XXX cards beat Nvidia a beating back then for quite awhile. I still have a 9700 Pro churning away in my brothers PC, complete with 80mm fan rigged to it as the stock fan failed years ago.

    Most problems related with computers ly between the chair and the screen

    Nvidia drivers are, according with my experience, better than ATI's, but I don't really care about that, I just want to play some games...
    Are we there yet?

    you just never hear that with Nvidia, and for me, driver nonsense i cant stand, there is no excuse for it.

    Have you used any recent Nvidia driver? I'm also guessing that you don't ever post at Guru3d either. Nvidia drivers have been garbage for a few months now and I remember when they implemented physix there drivers were terrible for months as well.

    I don't think I've ever had Nvidia drivers that don't randomly crash once in awhile. They're mostly stable, but it's still very annoying when it happens, especially L4D multiplayer which seems to love crashing the display driver.
