Claims by NVIDIA

Claims by AMD


Same old story.

Baseless claims from either company are annoying, but this is interesting. Ubisoft did not correctly implement Direct 11 tesselation to specifically benefit nVidia. A quick look at the H.A.W.X. 2 website confirms my suspicions..."the way it is meant to be played."

Dirty trick nVidia...have a developer purposely cripple a game and you line their pockets in exchange.

This goes a little deeper than the typical he said she said.

There will never be enough 'concrete' proof to support either claim.

This is typical of both companies.
Which is why I wish Intel wOuldn't have shelved there Discrete Graphics solutions.
A third *blue* competitor would have just been perfect.

Come on. This is a PRE RELEASE benchmark. Expect it to be bug free? Especially from Ubisoft?

Someone ban this Avid6eek guy from posting in any Nvidia/ATI related threads. He says the same thing in every single one of them, derails the topic and makes it impossible to engage in discussion. He's on my ignore list, so I can't actually see what he says anymore, but I can only guess at it's quality. :doh:

Agreed. I was looking forward to larabee to see how it would change the graphics landscape.

Ubisoft has issues with how they implemented DX11 tesselation. The Radeon HD5XXX and HD6XXX series are fully DX11 compliant. This bug should equally affect NV and AMD. AMD has show Ubisoft how to fix the problem, and the developer who recieves nice checks from NV has chosen not to implement the fixes. That is quite the series of unfortunate events for AMD.

Where is HC's copy of this email? It's sitting in someone's inbox. >>> Looking at you SKYMTL since you do have your "high level" talks with nVidia about future products and such (refering to GTX 580 thread).
