I have been thinking recently that it would be an interesting topic for Logan and Wendell to cover various issues regarding nVidia and AMD.
The first part is the myth that nVidia has better drivers, something I've found to be completely untrue, as have others. When actually analysed, it seems nVidia actually produces consistently worse software.
This isn't really an AMD versus nVidia thing, but an observation on how nVidia have the reputation for golden drivers, and AMD have the reputation for bad drivers when the reality is actually the opposite.
Also, another subject is the dodgy doings that nVidia seems to get itself caught up in, with regards to proprietary software and the underhanded tactics that they have used on a number of occasions.
It's something I think Logan and Wendell would find particularly distasteful considering the topics regularly discussed on The Tek.
There have been multiple instances of nVidia doing something dodgy that benefits them at the expense of everyone else. Batmann Arkham Asylum with Anti-Aliasing to name one, Assassin's Creed and DX10.1 is another. The way they were pushing developers to use extreme levels of tessellation, levels beyond what you could actually discern so that performance was dragged down for everyone, just not as much for nVidia users.
The way they use and implement PhysX with developers, where basic physics effects are left out of games unless you play with GPU PhysX enabled to give an artificial impression that PhysX is doing much more than it actually is.
As you can see, I don't think much of nVidia, so I don't buy their products, however this isn't an nVidia versus AMD thing. I dislike nVidia for things that they themselves as a company have chosen to do, and the reason I buy AMD is simply because they are the only option for PC gaming if you don't want to support nVidia and their underhanded ways financially.
