Is Tomb Raider’s performance trouble the herald of things to come for Nvidia’s gamers?

PCG:AMD aren’t going to have to lift a finger, or spend a single dollar of their marketing budget, encouraging devs to code for their hardware anymore. Those developers are simply going to have to if they want to code for a next-gen platform. Meanwhile, Nvidia will have to spend a lot more cash, and parachute a lot more engineers into dev studios, to make sure these games are going to work well on their hardware.

Nvidia has gotten less and less popular in games I remember when almost every game had the Nvidia the way its meant to be played . Now its AMD thats everywhere.

Check Hardocps driver comparison for the past year. Nvidia had more games running better at launch than AMD did.

Infact AMD has been crap for crossfire performance last year. With every other game getting drivers months later.

AMD has been paying more recently for advertising in games because they realized their gpu quality is behind nvidia

This article is 100% Bull CRAP!!

Either the writer is just another Consoler who knows ZERO about PC Gaming or is just an eTool eWhoring for web hits!

either way this article is BLASPHEMY!!

Those who are REAL PC Gamers know that Nvidia has the best Driver Team PERIOD

It's Not an OPINION but it's a FACT written in Stone somewhere that Nvidia Driver's are flat-out Superior to AMD's by a country mile and then some. Proven time and time again and backed up by benchmarks.

I use both AMD and Nvidia and even though this time around AMD has a Better card Nvidia is still pumping out drivers almost weekly that improve performance of every major game released.

Sure in the past Nvidia was all about "TWIMTBP" Program but they seem to have slowed down on that and concentrated on their Tegra Chip BUT Nvidia's Driver team is still in place and their EGO is bigger than ever cause they know they got AMD's Driver team beat!

Nvidia is the Number 1 GPU for PC Gamers.
Intel is the Number 1 CPU for PC Gamers.

AMD is Number 2 on both fronts so doing what was necessary to gain business through the consoles was just a business deal as Nvidia and Intel really were not interested in consoles especially when a cell Phone or Tablet can move 100 million units in 2 or 3 years while a console might do it in 8 years.

Nvidia is trusted by PC Gamers every where and to even insinuate that Gamers are in trouble is CRAP and an insult to Nvidia!!!

One game comes along that goes really well with AMD cards and it immediately means Nvidia is in trouble? Yeah, seems legit.

Journalism at its finest.

OT: Uh, no.

I'm sure Nvidia is already on the job with all new type of features and driver support

I used to be an AMD fan, but I have had too many issues with their drivers over the years.

NVIDIA more often than not has had excellent driver support. Sure I have had a few hiccups here and there, but nothing like my AMD days.

AMD usually has more power for less money, but the drivers keep the cards from truly unleashing their power.

The drivers I just got for my 660ti has seen some remarkable performance boosts in some of the games I play.

Can't really speak to much about recent AMD cards as I haven't been keeping up with them. I hope the people that use them have better driver support now.

ya I went from a 5870 which was amzing at the time to 2 580s in sli as like 2 months after launch they were $300 after rebates and instore promo which at the time was insane and still is good i think for now times
