The difference is more like, AMD/ATI is for tinkerers, and Nvidia more or less, isn't. Nvidia has a heck load of options, just the driver UI looks outdated as fuck compared to Radeon Adrenalin. For my experience with Radeon, I didn't tinker much, but I can see that the new ones have a heck load of tinkering options, like Radeon Chill, Sharpening, etc. Nvidia, in that regard, they have things like Ansel, DLSS, RTX, more or less useless features, at least to me and for now. RTX needs still time IMO. Radeon Chill is more interesting than those.Well, FWIW I believe AMD has been addressing the enthusiast segment more than Nvidia because of their market position, the more they grow, the more their policies and software will start resembling those of Nvidia and Intel, that is, a simple and more reliable environment with way fewer customization options and less intergeneration compatibility. This is already starting to show in their CPU policies. In future, they will offer much more similar experiences, I wonder what topics will animate fan battles in the fora ?
PS. Enthusiast, I mean it depends how you define it. Talking performance, AMD has no "enthusiastic" GPUs at all. RDNA 2 could change that, though. I certainly hope so.
