Oh nvidia


You have become the de facto GPU company in recent years, with AMD lacking behind you got the market almost to yourself.

But no of course you have to takle a lesson from the Microsoft and Intel handbook and come up with a program that basically shuts out AMD from the market



So what do i have to say about this?


Well screw you Nvidia for one


Secondly as soon as i can get the money i am going to sell my GTX 1060 off and get a AMD card, maybe not this year but sure as heck when Navi comes out i will see what they have in store.


Thirdly I hope AMD sues the living crap out of you nvidia and wins


If it wasnt for AMD drivers being flaky at the time i got my nvidia card I would have went for them, it was only drivers for linux is why I went with nvidia in the first bloody place.


Heck if it was available i would go get a RX580 or something but miners have put a stop to that idea.


Now i am rooting for navi, sure vega was a bit of a letdown but it may still be good for those who want a gaming laptop for cheap.


I just hope navi is where AMD will make a buig comeback radeon will mean something again and nvidia put in their place.

Another reason to boycott Microsoft Intel / Nvidia.


Another reason why I stay away from all of the newfangled latest and greatest apparently now very biased hardware / computers.


I'll say it again old computers and hardware are superior and always will be imo.


Although I use both, I've always preferred ATI graphics cards over Nvidia graphics cards.
