It seems like AMD needs to take a step back and get their drivers in order. This would make any subsequent hardware release awesome news.
For now, I don't see how they keep pumping out great hardware with sub-par drivers. I guess if people keep considering 2nd-rate performance as value, then AMD will see some success with a new gen of GPUs.
You are absolutely right! Because the fact they haven't had to bring out any competition from their 7XXX series while nvidia had to release the 7XX series and Titan video card to remain competitive isn't proof what-so-ever. Still rockin a non-reference 5850 and it still gets me by with todays games.
