    I personally don't care about the blame game, but crashes so obvious makes you wonder if CD actually even tested with an Nvidia card.

    If it matters that much to you, you should read up.
    The game needs a patch as well as a driver update.
    How can NVidia help what has happened?

    Oh wait, you wouldnt know, yet you still spout :rolleyes:

    Hey at least you guys will get a driver fix and a game patch. I still can't run RAGE without it constantly crashing and being glitched up the wazoo in seemingly random ways.

    AMD 7000 series has some hw addons for ID5 engine, guess AMD couldnt fix it with driver.

    @ Mufflore

    Imo nvidia could have reacted faster and demanded that retail game code sooner, not "tweaking" with some old code for this long.
    That's way I think its kinda weak excuse..

    I bet it would be much better if they asked for this new code 2-3weeks before release

    Surely you read what NVidia said?
    They werent given the new code until the game was released.
    They created a driver based on the older code they were given.
    How are they to know that code wont be used in game?

    Even if they had received the right code, the game needed a patch anyway.
    NVidia couldnt have sorted this out without the game devs providing information they can use AND fixing the code they released.

    Well Im guessing, they are a big corp. they should have asked more.

    Or do you really think SuqareEnix & Eidos said :finger2: u nvidia you cant have it, AMD said so.
    It can be but I kinda doubt it, this sounds more like nvidia's scenario. Remember BatmanAA lol they actually made anti AMD antialiasing hehe xD

    and yet the game released a 1.8gb patch at release day, I mean if nvidia asked more frequently then those bugs could have been resolved as well, wouldn't you agree? :)

    Ah well.. it is what it is, Imo both messed up - Nvidia, AMD and now its us users that get a ****ty experience in the end

    Um and how long do you think it takes to write a driver, test it, make sure it works with the new patch that was released when? ...

    Your not with stupid, you are it :)
    The IQ level here is definitely dropping.

    Why pick Nvidia and developers side and not the people who play the game ? it should work at launch

    Huh?
    If they dont know they need to ask, why would they ask.
    Its up to the devs to release the code to NVidia if its changed, thats their job.

    Talk to CD, not nvidia cause nvidia are one of the victims in this pitiful show of arrogance.

    Huh?

    so if every new game that got released played crap on AMD cards for weeks then there would be no damage done to AMD reputation then? business as usual eh?
    fair play is all we ask, not exclusion.

    CD shot themselves in the foot as well because initial sales will be slower due to these issues.
    NVidia sales will be slowest.
    I havent bought it yet due to them.
