  • ionut19When nvidia usually releases a new driver you also get increased performance. Here you get VLC player compatibility..why did i bought ATI?I have driver 10.5 and still work fine. At this rate i will not upgrade only when they release driver 11.0. Just bug fixes and small improvements in certain areas with this driver.

    Maybe because they got it right with performance from the first time and there`s nothing else to improve ? and for nvidia you get improvements for sli etc not for 1 card. And i find it pretty interesting that they take time to tweak the drivers for other aplications too other than video games.

  • why did i bought ATI?
    Because you wanted a video board that's not going to die in six months?

  • It's better than Nvidia releasing drivers that kill your GPU. Yes we do testing but we didn't test that our new drivers turn off the fan.

    ATI also doesn't relabel old products with new labels and sell them for $100 more.
