Nvidia vs AMD Drivers
What Company do you believe delievers better drivers. Currently using CFX 6870's however I'm going green due to HORRID drivers . Is the grass really greener on the Green Team? :biggrin:

Nvidia hands down.

no question, nv all the way

Typically nVidia, I've found the odd beta drivers from nVidia to have quirks (like the current one always forgetting my 2nd monitor if i turn them off before the monitors go to sleep)

Single card, they are about even with a slight edge going to NVIDIA. Multi card drivers......NVIDIA, without a doubt.

I'm totally on the Nvidia bandwagon too. The last time I used AMD, need the .NET framework or something just to use the control panel. Nvidia just works out of the box.

So does AMD. And I've never needed .NET to use them.

i use to love red team but after trying green team and finding way less drops in fps in games i became a lover of green and there drivers i always find normally give a good performance boost

AMD all the way for me, never had any luck with Nvidia at all.

Well i agree with sky .... at least on the single card thing there pretty even.

And anytime someone try's to say the nvidia drivers are some "better" I disagree with it cause they do screw up, like how about awhile ago there driver killing cards cause it actualy shut off the fan's on there cards :haha::thumb:. Also as tom's proved a few years back, there driver/software preformance is dependant on cpu speed/accelorated where as ati/amd's are not dependant on it.

I also still think that while nvidia has improved on there image quality n such. I always found there graphics to be "blocky" & "bright". I always found ati/amd had vividness/depth in there rendering vs nvidia's & im the type of person that would rather have a quality image vs blocky/jagged images + higher frames.
