Rocksteady update their minimum PC requirements and acknowledge an issue with performance on systems using AMD graphics cards, ahead of Batman: Arkham Knight's release tomorrow.
Waiting for AMD to come out and say "ITS ALL NVIDIA GAMEWORKS FAULT" for the 100th time.
I have to agree with AMD hasn't been getting much love with games. DX12 seriously can't come soon enough.
isn't is though?
I feel bad for AMD. They are a good brand with attractive prices, but games tend to perform better on Nvidia hardware. Sad to see this GPU war is affecting the consumer.
Sorry to say this but it's always the same. Never ever going to buy an AMD card again in my life!
Big surprise there...
I'm worried about upgrading my drivers, they seem to downgrade 600/700 series with each new driver.
I'm completely shocked, how could such a thing ever happen?
PC master race internal wars, AMD vs NVIDIA.
Pirate away guys ;) Certainly not worth rewarding devs for gimping one brand of hardware.
Well, that just stinks.
this always happens
Oh look, it's another Nvidia day 0 driver release with support for Batman before the game even comes out. AMD driver release...a week from now? You have got to do better than this AMD.
Man there needs to be a third company that does graphics... it would be cool and exciting.
Impossible. I read somewhere that all of the world's GPU drivers knowledge base resides in two companies. Nvidia and AMD. Without them PC gaming would crumble and come to screeching stop because the devs are utterly incompetent or they simply lack the resources to optimize their codes properly. The Nvidia and AMD teams must then shift through the devs piss poor codes and optimize their drivers accordingly for that particular game. Thus any third player coming into this market must not only out compete Nvidia and AMD on hardware and pricing, but they must also spend millions upon millions on drivers and support as well. The burden of constant software support is basically the only reason we haven't seen any larger player like Intel and Samsung enter the market.
Yeah, Nvidia reps stated that the level of incompetence even AAA game developers have is astounding. From what I can tell, the reason we get Nvidia Game Ready drivers for almost every game is because more often than not, the game code is an utter mess, with devs even forgetting to signal the beginning and the ending of a frame rendered. I'm no dev, but that sounds like a real stupid thing to do if you're developing a AAA game.
Dont Intel do graphics? Just not good I guess.
All the Arkham games perform poorly on AMD cards.
All nvidia games run crap on amd systems while amd games are optimised for everything.
A sad truth
May cost more but at least I don't get the headaches I had when I went with AMD.
so,if nvidia trying to push gaming and graphics,they are bad? :D they invest and they get results.it is enough to cry,poor amd,do shit and get defense.amd don't support gaming,don't support drivers,why this is nvidia fault? :D
This Nvidia vs AMD debacle is a perfect example of how sometimes proprietary technology triumphs open source tech. No one can blame Nvidia if they partner up with developers to use proprietary Nvidia tech. CUDA is a marvel, Physx is nice and everything else can run on AMD cards. If a game is built to use something not every card has, it's bound not to work as well on said cards. Simple fact. Ignoring the possibility of Nvidia handicapping AMD cards intentionally with GameWorks (which somehow, I doubt), that alone is reason enough for worse performance on AMD cards compared to Nvidia cards. For AMD users it's like simulating a logical CPU core - it's not going to be nearly as efficient as a proper physical CPU core. Not to mention that AMD cards are powerful and all, but coupled with horrible driver support and insanely high power consumption... Nvidia is a no brainer.
Even I'll play this game by my PC with GTX 970 card. I still wants to say that PC doesn't takes best gaming experience. Performance issue, driver unstable,interrupt by OS alert...bra bra
