no bananas until proper drivers.
they would get things done quick !
Microsoft must make new DX Standarts.
If you look at Wii/PS3/Xbox360 there havent driver problems, they just make games for this consoles. they use dx full out, and some games even are optimize more to ati or nvidia.
so here is a big problem.
The games must be optimized to DirectX, not to Nvidia or ATI cards, in this way Matrox or Intel even can have a Comeback and all games are same.
The Wii and PS3 do not use DX. Neither does the 360. It's not full DX as you said.
You clearly don't have a clue how games are developed for consoles. Game developers on consoles don't even want to deal with API. That's their biggest complain with PC Gaming, the DX API...
There have been countless blogs, interviews and articles of game developers trashing the DX API and it's problems. Console development is direct to metal, command line access, not DX.
If I were boss, I'd refer to the team as "us" and the problem as "ours".
If that's the best you can come up with I doubt you'd add much value to their team.
You are right Console havent DX, i dont know why i write something like that, anyway what i want to say is Direct X must be more compatible to consoles, because we play 90% console ports on the PC, by the way direct x need a own multi gpu support, no more crossfire and sli standarts, in this way crossfire people dont need to wait for every game a new cap or driver.
Here here, i second that, my next purchase will be Nvidia with out a doubt.
lol, you do all realise that skyrim is a cpu bound game and will run at 60 fps in non cpu bound scenes on any decent single gpu..
I'm assuming you meant it doesn't work? well alt-tabbing twice works for most.
yeah i know where your coming from,
Imagine holding £318 in your hands ripping it up and throwing out of the window on a motorway, ..........well that's basically what ive done, sold my beloved 5870 for a £318 hd6870x2 (1 card 2 gpu's) just for skyrim thinking it would be a graphics hog just like oblivion was when it first came out, and guess what.......... i have to disable a gpu to get better performance, man i am peeved, (biting knuckles) to think i could of got a gtx580 (cry)
for me everything works fine, i know CCC team sucks, and same goes for nvidia, if you look how many threads for drivers problems, i care less now, i just stop playing new games and wait till theres a fix first, then i buy it. so my release dates for games is like a month past the real real release date
Nvidia Driver Problems = About 101,000,000 results (0.16 seconds)
ATi Driver Problems = About 93,800,000 results (0.15 seconds)
If i was the boss of the CCC team
id be all liek ur not the boss of me IM THE BOSS OF YOU!!
My current 6990 + 6970 and the water block for the 6990 cost me over £1000
For the last 5 years ive bought 2 or more of AMD top cards and its always the same thing.
These games mentioned are top titles with release dates being known for many months so imo to not have drivers ready for these top titles is very poor.
Guys like the OP and me i think have a right to voice our discontent with the drivers seeing as we are the paying customers of these cards.
In the times when almost every game title was "nvidia - meant to be played" ATi managed to do nice cards and not bad drivers. Nowadays even the games coded specially for AMD cards work like sh*t on AMD cards. LoL
Should I even begin to attempt to explain to you how wrong your "logic" is? Aside from obviously being based on what Google can dig up based on what is talked about out there (with many duplicates), meaning right there it doesn't represent the amount of problems at all... there are many more nVidia users than AMD users. Am I getting through to you at all?
Telling people not to voice their disgust about AMD's failure won't improve anything. Nothing will ever improve unless the developers/manufacturers get a ton of negative feedback on a regular basis. Too bad these days they just ignore and ban those who give feedback on their forums.
I paid something like $330 (before taxes) for this piece of crap, I expect it to function as advertised.
@ BlackZero, no i meant what i typed, it's a bug and Alt-Tab works once for me to get full fps and u can blame Bethesda for that issue.
@ Neo Cyrus you can't get a single card to work with your games then your doing something wrong. No reason for owning a PC to not be able to play a specific game.
@ V1tol games are not coded for any specific hardware on the PC platform, some one didn't read my previous post lol, that's called marketing and by the sounds of it you got sucked in.
PC's are an enthusiast platform, deal with it or buy a ah... console (such a dirty word that).
My xfire works in Skyrim but every save it stops working then alt tab fixes it again until next save.
I also get around 3 CTD every 5 mins of gameplay.
If I was the boss of CCC this is what I would say:
I ask you, how DO you get a faster card out of less powerful chip?
Well you don't.
But you can assign majority of the driver team on the job of guessing the game execution path.
Trying to squeeze every last bit of performance, thus maintaining the picture of parity.
It looks something like this.
Nvidia / AMD driver teams priorities:
Functionality, compatibility, features <----|-----> <--|-------> Performance
Of course we are bound to brake things here and there, but it's a war out there you know.
And war is hell.
try disabling powerplay (msi afterburner unofficial oc mode 2) and use 2d/3d profiles from msi afterburner, Skyrim causes the driver to drop to lower clock rate/power modes when the menu is open.
