    Their higher video RAM? I didn't know AMD had a monopoly on higher video memory solutions in the GPU market. Better port as per GCN? I believe there have been Gaming Evolved titiles that ran better on comparative NVIDIA GPUs. I might be one of those people that understands what GameWorks is, so I'm not defending it but why should end-users be all battling this out like it's some big conspiracy. You want to run a game that is NVIDIA "supported", get an NVIDIA card, just like those who have NVIDIA cards have to settle for Gaming Evolved games. We're not talking about UNICEF here people, it's corporations using marketing tools.

    Well, i still think that the close relation between Ubisoft and Nvidia will hurt games on pc as a whole.

    1. Nvidia fucked up with xhysics, not that many games support it after a decade. Most games uses Intels Havok which can almost the same, or the difference isent worth mentioning.

    2. Now Nvidia has gone into bed with Ubisoft which might hurt owners of Radeon cards preformancewise on Ubisoft titles in the future. Or not, since AMD delivers to xbox one and also PS4, that has to be taken into account, since the consoles it where the money is, not in the pc game market, thats only a niece now.

    I would like studios to embrace Mantel, since it only makes dx11 look bad, no matter which GFX you have in your machine. Which got Microsoft off their feet, and mabye make dx12 funtion much better that dx10, dx10.1 and dx11, then im a happy camper.

    So far Mantle gets support from more studios, and i rekon since AMD sits on all consoles, Nvidia shits themselves there missing out.

    I dont care if my setup runs 3 frames less on AMD than on a Nvidia card, as long as my gaming experience is solid and enjoyable then im happy:).

    I for one, hate monolopy, so i allways backup the little guy, thats why ive shifted from Intel/Nvidia to purely AMD as my main computer, it can run everything i wants it to do, so im happy with the change, end of story.

    Unreal WHO ? Epic has done nothing to push their engine to the limits the last 2 years(I hope), otherwise Frostbite and refurbished Dunia will run them over, like they allready have

    Do you have anything to say about the topic, or does calling people names give you some sort of cheap thrill?

    When i said gaming I also meant workstation.
    Gameworks won't destroy gaming. What game studio in their right mind would continue to use it if it hurts gamers... aka their customers and potential customers. Especially when it is out in the open, the practices nVIDIA are using (dll's vs source code) are bad form and hurts more than it helps. Gameworks is bad, but I'm not calling the end of the world, because that would just be insanely foolish.

    It's far from just a pissing contest when it hurts gamers. Don't get it twisted.

    Xbox One and PS4 don't use Mantle. AMD has already said Mantle is not intended to be used on consoles, its strictly a PC API. Consoles don't need Mantle because of the way developers are able to code to the metal already.
