    If this is all true (not saying that it is...) how come nobody has filed a lawsuit against them?

    Seriously, is there some reason you're trying to 'boor' us to death with old discredited nonsense? At least try to interest us with new conspiracies.

    Eh yeah, 'Can it play Crysis'. Gosh where have you been Ichabod Crane? I'll bet you believe 9/11 was an inside job and NASA faked the moon landings.:infinity: Surely you have better material than this. I think we'll start calling you Stale Trope Trooper.

    so when pascal is out this thread is going to be renamed to "Nvidia is deliberately downgrading Maxwell gpu's performance in favor of Pascal. ", am i r8?

    Haha I don't know why they do it, narukun seems salty, like he's convinced himself he is owed a a consistent framerate despite games becoming more demanding. He got 60fps two years ago, he wants 60fps now, ray tracing be damned.

    NASA did fake the moon landings, they conspired with nvidia to fake the moon landings because they needed to sell more maxwell cards using the Vxgi Apollo 11 demo.

    Waiting for ColdFlo to tell us where the transsexuals come into play

    How can we have been so blind, we apologize for our stupidity Hercule Poirot, thank the silicon god you're here to enlighten us. Game developers are bribed by nvidia to increase polygon counts, vram usage and tesselation factors! How dare they do these things, silly ****ers, it's like they don't even know all the other ways of increasing IQ. You know... Like... Uh... Async.

    Silly ****ing developers! Increasing polygon counts! HOW DARE THEY.

    I think ColdFlo is suffering from 'shrinkage'. :)

    I think coldflo is one of those deep sea divers that surfaced too quickly and ended up with pockets of nitrogen rapidly expanding in his brain

    Totally unpredictable cellular damage, today he's barking about nvidia, tomorrow he'll be chewing the carpet

    It's already happening, I went down to 293 fps minimum from 297 in previous drivers in CSGO, nvidia is gimping maxwell to give pascal owners a competitive edge.

    Oh I bet we'll get three other threads rather than a rename. So even the people that believe in such things don't have the oversight to put all of their posts in a single thread :rolleyes::D

    agree, imo, recent games indeed aren't that visually stunning while somewhat require alot more gpu power.

    This is my main gripe. I have faint memories Crysis 1 being one of the more awesome games visually, and yet games like fallout 4 that are done on "updated" morrowind engine are suddenly more demanding? Yeah sure you can add some stuff to make the game lag more / hog more, but what's the point if the visuals just aren't that good? It's a never ending cycle to sell more hardware.

    I can understand if a game like Star Citizen is a little demanding from the hardware.. but a morrowind 2.5/3.0 ?
