    Nice! With this on Wednesday and the Surface 2 event on Monday it's going to be an interesting tech week coming up. Reply

    Now I want to see the same attention to detail and writing that the iPhone and Intel gets. Lets see if that happens or not, but it should be interesting none the least. Reply

    It won't get the same level of attention because, unlike with Apple, AMD doesn't make mysterious blackboxes with codenames like "Oscar" that you have to glean from debugging tools.... Reply

    This leads me to wonder why more press conferences aren't streamed live. I'm sure if live feeds of these tech press conferences were available (particularly smartphone announcements) they would get hundreds of thousands of viewers. Reply

    Hoping their new releases put some added pressure on NV... Tho the GTX 7xx series wasn't priced too bad (outside of the 780). I've been thinking of getting two GTX 760s but I'll wait it out... Reply

    Hey, on my birthday! Does that mean I get a free GPU? Reply

    I can understand someone saying that they want the fastest gpu, so they hope that amd releases the fastest card next month. I cannot understand someone saying that they hope amd releases the fastest card next month so that they can go and buy an inferior nvidia card. Do you wear an nvidia wedding band? Please explain yourself. Reply

    I've got two 6950 I'm relatively happy with right now, but given similar performance/$ I'd probably go with NV next time... They've got their act together when it comes to drivers. If AMD comes out with something far ahead in performance/$ I'd still end up with two red cards. Had a single GTX 260 before the Radeons and another Radeon before that btw.

    It always makes more sense to wait until both company's current lineups are out anyway, as it'll either spur a price war or stabilize often nutty launch prices.

    The sheer amount of complaints recently about NVIDIA drivers, blue screens, driver resets in Windows, etc etc has been pretty deafening.

    Honestly, I would have generally agreed if it wasn't for this recently. It's much more of a toss up in the driver area than it seems.

    The thing is that while both companies have driver bugs, ncidia fixes theirs in a timely manner usually. The 320.xx series drivers had some major problems but a couple of months later and they've been mostly resolved. Last time I used and cards(5870) there were significant crashes and blue screens that were never resolved the entire 1.5 years I had the card.

    Also the frame pacing issue is quite bad and even the 'fixed' drivers remain quite interior to nvidia. There is a lot I don't like about Nvidia especially their business practices but it is hard to argue that their products are not fundamentally higher quality than AMD. That is why they are usually able to command a price premium even at similar performance levels.

    I don't want the fastest gpu. I only want good priced nvidia GPU as in my area, computational physics and chemistry, CUDA is the dominant tech for GPU acceleration. And nvidia gaming GPU is the perfect choice (compared to the savagely overpriced Quadro and Tesla). Reply
