Yeah highlights seems really fun but how much disk space does it use ?
Default size is 5GB in temp folder. Though not sure if it works correctly, as I'm already at 5.6GB despite that setting. Will keep an eye on it, but I don't think it's dramatic.
At least that way such things don't get lost anymore:
So you got something to show when people claim Fortnite would be easy on the hardware.
Im happy with nVidia drivers, 1.5Y and no problems at all.
For me upgrades are too often tho (Rebuilding Cache)
But it's flawless at it's core, Click Upgrade - DONE (some times i don't need to even restart )
DLSS + RT (RTX), Ansel, NV Recording, nV Game Filter to name the best IMhO. Just works™
Using almost all the time: DLSS + RT (RTX) & nV Game Filter (Sharpen+ FTW)
Some games even have Enchanced AO & RTAO with not much of a impact (it is but not too big).
My next GPU will be nV im 99% sure of it.
4090 vs 4090
What a scam
so i invented "fine wine"?
go troll somewhere else
No, they're not
i buy GPU's every generation and have for the last twenty years.
most of those have been Nvidia because for many years AMD didn't have an enthusiast grade card.
the 6xxx series is neck and neck with all Nvidia cards except the 3090ti. the 7900xt and xtx are Superior in every way to the 3090ti and in most ways to the 4080 and are CLEARLY superior to the 4070ti
i said AMD drivers over time are superior and i'm not talking isolated use cases. i'm talking FPS in actual games have improved over time and they have no matter what crap you throw out there it is a documented fact by every "GPU shootout" over time.
The only BS is the hot air youre blowing in here. "Over time" they are superior.... riiiight.
We are talking about drivers and you are talking about lengths of time... lol you AMD fanboys are something else.
PS: What card you gonna lie about next?
i'm no AMD fanboy, and in the same posting i was talking about the number of Nvidia GPU's i own or have owned.
only fanboys go with Ad Hominem attacks (which shows they have zero merit).
when i was talking about drivers i said "most of Nvidia's updates are marketing spam" - prove me wrong or shut up.
and the ONLY thing i said about AMD driver was in the context of time - which if you have a brain means they're not "game ready".
you Nvidia fanboys are something else. go finish school or take remedial logic and rhetoric classes. btw... this was written on an Nvidia system
Guys it's pointless, everyone has hes owns pick and experience.
Im now on nV side and it Superb.... Im happy with my GPU.
Someone have Radeon - OK let him have it
Yes we need people who buy Radeon for whatever reason, now more than ever, or RTG could close shop and we have Nvidia split into 2 from anti trust laws
People will buy radeon when they get their crap together, start being competitive on price and performance and stop their marketing bs.
Just look how amd cpus are successful grabbing share from intel left and right.
lol the Kellyanne Conway of this site got angry.
Just look at all those nvidia systems he writes his posts from, he's so not anti-nvidia and pro-amd.
First maybe explain what updates are "just marketing spam" specifically if you expect people to prove this wrong, can't imagine proving such a blanket statement either right or wrong. And if those are "most of them" indeed, then what percentage of all updates do they consitute ?
Don't expect people to provide you with facts if you not only don't use any yourself, just your broad, personal judgements without any specifics, and ignore the unconvenient ones I posted, like the tests in productivity/workstation applications using cuda/optix.
Drivers don't really contain performance updates these days, they contain fixes for some system-specific issues. Nvidia puts those out often cause they actually acknowledge and fix issues quickly. You gotta be crazy to install all those and complain there's no performance gains. The driver I'm sitting on is months old, cause the drivers for Ampere have been fine for a long time and there's nothing new in drivers unless you have a specific issue that might get a fix. I enjoy this more than anything, don't really wanna see a driver suddenly provide a huge boost for a game that I might have already played cause the team was dragging their ass.
"marketing spam" is co-operative advertising from game studios on Nvidia Platforms - period.
and it's not like AMD doesn't do this, it's an Order of Magnitude less.
and the games played are entirely dependant on whther it's a "pointless" update or not.
but then you are not a large believer in logic as evidenced by your litany of postings that are just cheap shots at whomever you don't care for or the products listed. you go out of your way to piss on products that (at the time) haven't even been delivered to market w/o giving them a chance to be independantly judged, and after which you cherry-pick results to suit your case.
if i had a dollar for every "game-ready" update for games that should still be in Beta, i'd have the cash to buy a next-gen gpu.
this is collusion by the game studios and Nvidia. i can't really blame the game studios too much as Nvidia is the dominant force in gpu sales, but i can and do blame Nvidia.
CP2077 is a clear case in point as the drivers were crap for almost 6 months before it was playable and Nvidia spammed the hell out of it.
on the other hand Hogwarts Legacy will have exponentially more players than any 1st person shooter (incl CS:GO) but has problems out the gate w/ no Nvidia love (did WB not want to pay to play?)
Well, laptop GPUs have lower perf because they are both cut in terms of the chip as well as TDP for years now. Nothing new, but sadly, happening.
Honestly I never understood why they had to name it like that, but yeah, it is what it is. Naming and marketing to lure in the not tech savvy that buy tech.
even worse imho now. Nvidia's marketing has gone hog wild because they understand that mobile is where the money's at.
this became true during the first crypto boom - where like the second one the easiest way to get next gen gpus was thru mobile and that has continued to this day with mobile gpus outselling their desktop namesakes. AMD is new to the high performance gaming laptop world but the 6800M was a rockstar allowing for decent 1440p at a lower price point than Nvidia. the new AMD isn't going to set any perf. records, but it will at least be a solid gaming mid-budget alternative.
despite all of the schiesse dropping from Nvidia on the marketing level - including nomenclature - the 4090M and 4080M (maybe calling the 4090M 4080 and the 4080M 4070ti would boost sales not hurt it?) will be outselling the desktop variants by about 3:1
i held off on a new laptop hoping that AMD would finally get to the promised land in mobile, but i'll just get the ryzen 4 mobile w/the 4080M
450w card wit a 170W cpu on water cooling 50% faster than a 175w one with a laptop cpu ? who would have thought ....
@tunejunky wasn't cp2077 unplayable on amd cards and on cosoles too before cdpr fixed it ? why always blame nvidia for everything ? you sound like a bitter fanboy who only listens to adoredtv type bs.
a driver team's task is now mainly to fix game developer's incompetence with dedicated drivers, how is that "collusion". and if is, then how come nvidia broke cp2077 but amd didn't "collude" to break the s**tshow called callisto protocol ? it's officially their sponsored title. double standards coming from you, how surprising........
"Green team bad, collude with studios to break games. Red team good, fix performance, big gains - prove me wrong or shut up"
and don't these "marketing spam drivers" contain fixes for specific issues at the same time as they're advertising ? it's not their fault people (oddly including a guru3d member ?) are stupid enough to gobble up that marketing without looking into actual release notes to see if they need the driver or not.
you constantly vent on how much influcence nvidia has on pc gaming, how come you never really acknowledge the real reason for their 90% market share - the lack of real competition from amd. your shtick is getting old and tiring to read again and again, plastered all over this forum.
The only troll is you here,
Finewine was thought up by AdoredTV, after AMD managed to fix a longstanding performance issue that affected a number of games.
Make no mistake though, this wasn't "Fine Wine" it was "Hiring competent programmers".
so long as amd doesn't release drivers that have inherent bottlenecks, you don't get a "Fine Wine" effect, you're either seeing no changes at all, or on/off stability issues where elsewhere in the driver AMD has changed something at the detriment to certain configurations, or Applications.
Such as recently with the blackscreening MPO configurations, or the unstable Video decoding in not just browsers, but MPC.
IF this is about the Map issue, there isn't any evidence that nvidia's optimizations are actually at fault, because the same issue has been happening at random before hand, so this suggests a race condition at fault that could be aggrivated by driver changes. This still makes it a client bug rather than driver bug.
A bit like Sony's TV firmware issue with the non-VRR hdmi configs having problems after 516 but still being an actual TV fault.
nV fixed Map issue in CP2077 next day by updating Gforce Exp.
and in the same day (as bug) was fix DIY on their webside - strong good point for nV IMhO.
