    and AMD acquired them in 2006


    also AMD sucked at gaming on the K chips. even rockstar games said this for GTA 3





    I think amd was only good when Thunderbird came along.

    They must be launching some stupid marketing campaign with pointless '30 years blablabla' badges and some new, affordable GPU that follows the true spirit of AMD's heart and soul etc...

    That is not PR, they ARE Scientists....

    They have to come up with complicated formulas and architectures and draw up each new generation of gpu's.....

    It takes a lot of hard work and patience, trial and error....it's not just something that happens over night.

    Anything like that, which requires advanced equations and problem solving to create something is considered science.

    Therefore those people involved are scientists. It is not PR bud.

    Science is more than just medicine.

    There is nothing wiser about your statement. Science exists in many different fields.

    I still have driver issues, they never solved them in the lifetime of my product and of course there will be no fixes anymore.

    But so long as prices are artificially bloated as hell AMD will always have to be considered, even with poor drivers. Then again I haven't had an nVidia card since the GTX 280 so I don't know how they're doing in the driver department.

    It's pretty sad that AMD's CPU department is a joke and has been since 2006. I'm not looking for any discussion or arguments, that's just how I see it.

    Well now they have professional PR taking the stage holding the conference.
    Instead of that I woudln't mind another presentation held by real scientist like with GCN introduction

    I just want to know what "new" product is being announced. Aside from that, I can do without any of the information provided during the "conference"...

    As for Neo Cyrus, c'mon, you can't blame every single driver issue on AMD. You've complained about every driver that's been released since you got your card. It's impossible to have nearly as many bad drivers as you've complained about without either A.) having a bad card or B.) the issues being user induced. I haven't had as many driver related issues in the last 20 years as you've complained about just since you got your 6970.

    To another 30 years of bad drivers. The only reason I have regretted "every" ATI/AMD card I have owned.

    30 years of competing with a company that everyone pats on the back for forcing retailers not to stock amd products. I don't know how they've done it but damn good job! :thumbsup:

    wow looks like people have a very short memory or suffer of alzheimer :bang:

    Nvidia 320.18 drivers burning videocards for sure is better than "unstable" drivers.

    *ATI to Celebrate 30 Years of Graphics and Gaming, AMD just sinks deeper and takes ATI with it.

    Obviously that 11% increased marketshare they have now is making them heavier. Duh!

    That's just temporarily. Don't be so short minded. I indirectly work with pc hardware sales, i don't sell them, but i do test/repair/suggest and all other stuff that people need. So for a comparison, what people choose in my circle (CPU) ~ 95% intel, ~5% AMD, (GPU) ~65% NVIDIA, ~35% AMD. Profitability increase i guess is from GPU department. It's ATI that keeps AMD alive, i really want to see some fight between AMD and Intel, but i guess it's not gonna be soon. I'm not a fan boy. I hate monopoly. ATI(AMD) gpus today are great, and they make a stand. I'm glad that their GPU department does its job. But i keep AMD and ATi seperated.

    I also remember users on this forum Flashing their 9800pros into XTs. The same thing goes with the x800 series of cards as well. You rarely see this anymore. I seen a few users transform their 7970s into r9 280Xs by flashing. Oh the memories.
