    nVidia has the far superior support software, so buy that, not the junk that amd is Reply

    AMD are far from junk.

    You wan't bad graphics software support? Don't look past Intel, Matrox, S3, SiS et all.

    AMD are making massive inroads as far as compute is concerned, they even gobbled up Manju Hegde who was massively influential with Cuda and helped bring Ageia to the table.
    With HSA and OpenCL AMD have made great inroads and I'm looking forward to what they can achieve with that in the future.

    That's kind of the problem isn't it - it's still a wait for the future. I hear that all the time concerning amd - all the time.
    The future driver release that fixes the problems. (partially, and breaks others)
    The future games that make use of the unusable ram.(while the core petered out now)
    The future call on the debt payment, not so far off.
    Intel has shown vast improvements quickly - now they are also competition, but bringing up sis and s3 - really ?
    Stealing an nVidia insider for IP theft, nice move for an evil company.
    nVidia is further down the road and had been with OpenCL even as amd's pr had all their little fanboys screaming about PhysX and propriety... then AMD did the corpo pig lout thing and proprietized winzip - in 100% pure hypocrisy mode...
    Not that I care really, it's what amd should have been doing but Bullet sucks in comparison, and now they have the little amd fans thinking everything is compute in games.... even bitcoin claim the rabid and vapid groupies (incorrectly of course!).
    So whatever - good luck amd, the future, if it ever comes, looks umm... a ways off.

    You cannot take advantage of compute over night.
    You need developers to bring in applications to take advantage of it, it's slowly been happening since the Radeon x19xx days where Apps like Folding@Home were the first to take the plunge into GPU compute.

    What AMD has done is slowly opening up compute via OpenCL and HSA, it's not something that's happening in the future, it's something that has been happening in the past, present and will continue to happen in the future and will more than likely accelerate from here on out.

    As for IP theft, now you're just pulling dog poop out of the air, you should go lay down before you embarrass yourself, nVidia and AMD are always taking key personnel from each other and other companies.

    you and I must be thinking of two different AMDs... the company that is, does not resemble the company that was. Reply

    The company that was had more employees and at least had competition for the CEO position, instead of the near incapability of filling the spot.
    AMD did a Bain on themselves. LOL

    This article needs a major rewrite, it's very badly written. Please fix it, mistaking W with S, writing "hardwdare", etc. Reply
