AMD Drivers Still Suck - Any hope at all? - Tuesday, January 22, 2013 1:06 AM ( #1 )
For the longest time I have read "wait for the new drivers" for AMD GPUs. I've kept up with the drivers since I built my PC early last year. Nothing. They are still abominable. Blender still crashes because AMD drivers cause the memory to be wasted until it crashes, like clockwork, after ~10 minutes of use. Several games run like crap while other equally challenging to render titles are nothing next to them (ex: Saints Row the Third runs less than 25fps at lowest settings, Skyrim at more than 40fps on high settings). It's clearly not just me - AMD's shortcomings are well documented. Is there ANY reason I shouldn't chuck my HD 6XXX out the window and get an nVidia GPU? Has AMD given ANY indication that they care? ANY indication that they intend to make major...MAJOR fixes to the problematic drivers?
