AMD could release a card that comes with free BJ's and I would still buy NV. I gave up dealing with their crappy drivers + control panel years ago. They're a shell company at this point where bankruptcy is inevitable.

This is what happened to GLIDE. Split the industry in half and now we have a VHS/Beta war on our hands...

Now that DX12 just killed Mantle, I'm not very impressed. AMD gets to enjoy 18 months of benefit and then it's suddenly the underdog again...

I can only hope that CryTek does this right and forces the Mantle-infused CryEngine upon the developers of MechWarrior Online as the only way that game is going to be optimized is if a third party does it.

Of course, for that to do anything for me I'd have to be able to get my hands on a Mantle-enabled card that is, even without using Mantle, markedly better than my current setup and that doesn't seem likely to happen. C'mon AMD, make it so.
