    Hi Hilbert,
    would it be possible to also benchmark BF4 with new update on Nvidia cards? Am just wondering whether frames will not drop for Nvidia users just to make the mantle show up bigger difference in framerates.I know it would be very stupid from AMD/EA but you never know to what extremes they might move. Now I personally hope this won't be the case as I am a big fan of Mantle idea despite the fact that am running Nvidia cards at the moment.Thank you

    I'm wondering why this test doesnt make on multiplayer, like 64slot server on shanghai and some not so stressful map, that would make sense, single player is not a such a big deal. No hard effects evrything is mostly scripted. And doesnt make sense. Becouse you won't buy GTX780Ti to play single player on Battlefield 4,or any other Multiplayer related game.

    Did you even think this through? How do you simulate the same exact sequence 38 times in a multiplayer game? Scripted = Accurate.

    What else is new from AMD they are always saying wait wait wait then wait some more.
    Its like the airport with them hurry up get here then wait.
    I would really have more faith in them if they would shut their pieholes and just do it....it never stopped them before to put a out crashing driver with a new card launch

    At this time, i've already lost any faith i had in press.

    Then suddenly, this guy, Hilbert Hagedoorn, wrote this:

    "So guys, a little more patience please. The stress that the software team is feeling right now must be near silly, so in your comments please bare in mind that there are humans individuals working and stressing hard on this. We'll keep you updated as much as we are allowed to as often as we can. And yeah, give AMD a little more time please. I'm sure you will benefit a lot more from a stable driver opposed to a quick release that crashes all the time.

    What's a few days extra ?"



    You, that loves your fine art of trolling, will help to kill some of the last breath of sense this industry (or market, say as you want) that still pulses.

    People like Hilbert try, every day, to put a little life in his work.

    Admire him. Because you need.

    If you love some game, you will need him.

    Probably, it's one of the very few in this cancer called press that still respect us.

    I'm Leonardo Neto Rosa, a brazilian who love games and hardware.

    I'm very sorry for hurt your eyes with my vast knowledge of your language. But when i saw the kind of comments posted here, i decide to signup.


    Hilbert,
    I don't know if you have time to read what we post, but thank you.
    For doing your job. And, like Zobek said, "you're doing well, my friend".

    Thanks.

    If those specs are accurate then I actually understand you, apparently the mobile driver support has been rather weak.
    (Plus the constant re-branding, I think your GPU is a 7800 series but I am unsure which specific one, probably the 7850 from the name.)

    EDIT: With the upcoming APU's though AMD will have to step that up unless they already have, it's somewhat unfortunate that display drivers are so critical.

    You obviously didn't read the HardOCP XFX 290X Crossfire review a few days ago if you think this is the only site showing benchmarks where AMD is faster than NVIDIA.

    I come to this site because it gives unbiased reviews regardless of which company makes the technology.

    lol most likely those type of people are the ones that only go on websites, looks only at the graphs and conclusion (if got that far) and thinks one site is bias over another. If a site is bias (I have seen a ton) they will have a 5:1 ratio for one over the other. Look at the review section you will see that there are a good amount of 7xx cards and a good amount of R9 2xx cards. Anyway stop crying about the drivers, they will come when they come. After its released you know what a lot of people will think? zomg im not getting +50 more fps in games and cry some more.. or just forget anything even happened sigh.

    Not like AMD is the only one that delays drivers... nVidia has delayed drivers on quite a few occasions as well. Difference being that nVidia users don't go all ape**** over a driver delay like AMD users do. NVidia also doesn't generally announce driver releases ahead of time either...

    Well considering they've already announced my card *280x* is completely off the map in this driver, I have ziltch to wait for anyway. Not that it would really make a difference anyway, im running ultra, maxed out, @ 72fps now, so I get no Mantle, No trueaudio. Im really not sure why I bought an AMD card at this point. Our cards have been completely cut out of 'release dates' by the company that makes them. Lots of power to this card, but none of the bells and whistles. I'm really not too sure how to feel at this point...obviously I have to wait WEEKS now for any sort of exposure to these new tech's. So I guess there's a human here feeling a bit confused on this end. That's how this human is feeling anyway, esp after dumping over $2k into a machine, BASED on an AMD video card and its new upcoming techs. sigh.

    Did someone shorten January this year? You're throwing your dummy out of the pram and by my reckoning it's still not February yet.

    It's double standards to on one hand slate EA for releasing BF4 too early with bugs and then on the other slate AMD for making sure their driver is working properly rather than push it out with a serious issue.
