The SAM debarkle - making an unused part of an existing spec seem like their invention and originally gatekeeping support.
Ryzen 5000 on pre 5 series chipsets debarkle and caving
The 6500XT. What an insult.
Zen 3 and 4 pricing for 6 core models
7900XT pricing to upsell the 7900XTX
And that's all since Lisa Su took the reigns.
Look I won't get drawn into an argument with you about it, because I'm sure from your perspective nvidia is heaps worse right? There must be great reasons AMD did those things, and more, and people have an intense desire to defend then. I'm coming from the perspective that they all do shitty, greedy things, pretty much solely in the desire of increased revenue and profits.
So I stand by my general approach, weight each products unique proposition against your needs, and buy accordingly. If I was to draw a moral line on who to buy a GPU from, I wouldn't but it from any of them.
This one just seems especially daft, I'm sorry. They had to single handedly create this new wave of Upscaling and generate massive appetite for it both in competitors and consumers, before some people like to accuse them of holding the industry back, I reject that entirely.
Plus look at hubs coverage of xess, its plainly obvious why it only works on RTX cards, nobody would benefit, not nvidia, not the customers.
So they introduced Resizable Bar...a function that was always there, to the forfront....and that is a problem?
"making it seem like their invention"...yeah I dont get the issue there either, so what? 3 seconds later others can say its just resizable bar and again, COMPETITION CAN and did follow suit, its not like AMD blocked it from being used by anyone else.
"originall gatekeeping support", what exactly do you mean by that?
"Ryzen 5000 on pre 5 series chipsets debarkle and caving" You do understand why this was not originally a thing right? the fact that motherboards were never made with this much cpu support in mind? literally not having enough memory to store profiles for all different processors so you have to do some odd stuff to get that to work which can easily leave users with an unusable board unless they buy/borrow a compatible cpu real quick to fix it?
And yeah, consumers complaining and a company as a reaction complying with their wishes....what a horrible thing to do...thank god most companies just give consumers the middle finger....
6500XT is an insult but then the entire cryptocurrency/Covid19 period was a big insult, it shouldnt have been released, that is indeed a strike against them.
Zen 3 pricing being an issue is just nonsense, AMD sold their stuff super cheap in order to get some mindshare back from YEARS of Intel domination, when they finally convinced enough people (including the very companies they need to work with for example with motherboards) that they are worth a damn again, they are still not allowed to ask a bit more? they have to stay in this super low bracket even though their products beat the competition? come on now.
Zen 4 pricing, yes, that is too high, Intel is winning there and AMD should have answered with a slight price drop, heck I dont even get that AMD did not start with some 3DX models to keep/take the performance crown, just odd all around.
literally mentioned the 7900xt vs 7900xtx thing in the post you are replying to.
"from your perspective nvidia is heaps worse right?" yes and I backed that up with arguments.
On DLSS, they HAD to because they are heavily banking on selling the world the RTX brand and tech, and I dont mind that at all, what I mind is them then locking it exclusively for their hardware and shoveling buckets of cash to developers to PLS PLS PLS implement it, which they have to do because that is a lot of effort a developer has to go through purely to appease the Nvidia buyers, it wont help for the AMD buyers (ok thats barely 15% of the market if we look at steam) nor the console crowd (that is a much bigger market).
If they just made it open and asked simply to have mentioned in the settings DLSS by Nvidia, advertisment for them, gamers know where its from, heck it would even be optimised for their hardware and the competition just has to work to see if they can make it run decently on their hardware (same as XESS), then all would be fine, but nope, typical Nvidia, proprietory nonsense that cant last.
Gsync is dead because Freesync/Adaptivesync/VRR is here, PhysX is dead because we moved on to generic solutions that work for all, we cant have games in the future that have an entire page of the exact same tech just for every vendors version of it....that would just be stupid and man, think of the waste of human effort and energy for AMD and Intel to now have to make their own versions of something that already exists.......
So yeah, I dont think im daft, I think Nvidia is the one being daft and like I said, anti consumer and anti progress.
Hell if they just shared the tech, who knows what extra improvements maybe AMD and Intel could have brought to the table.
"Plus look at hubs coverage of xess, its plainly obvious why it only works on RTX cards, nobody would benefit, not nvidia, not the customers."
that last sentense I dont get, intel's xess only works on RTX cards? and nobody would benefit if that was not the case?
And yes mods, we are getting off topic, ill leave it for DM's after this.
