but this isn't a problem for me.
the Point is the most users are backwarded in mind they think company build good stuff in the future if they build good stuff in the past.
example they think nvidia gtx480 is nice because geforce256 was nice in the past. but is NOT! CUDA/PhysX is crap the hardware is a complete 'fail'
that's because on very high resolutions the texture rendering power is to 'low' so you can't get more "FPS" and the efficiency is 100watt+ for only max 5% more fps..
just a example
In my world nvidia is bankrupted (in the future)
my Point of view is fully Future oriented
why i should care about the past ? catalyst 10-5 is the 'last' old styled driver.
you will see
you will see
isn't the stuff not the stuff i talked about ?
stuff like uuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the 10-6 rock da house...
the reason is:
you are toxic. You create expectations and when your predicted greatness fails to turn up the people are disappointed. At that point they don't blame you - no, they blame AMD.
You are toxic for AMD. You are creating a bad mood. You are acting stupid.
Do I need to continue?
Oh, and 'NDA's': yeah, we should not follow them. we also should break all contracts. Laws? Are for sissys. Lets go and beat up Q. ....
nvidia should pay me for being a nvidia hater.
if nvidia hire up more Q. nvidia haters they really 'win' because of the users blame AMD LOL.
Yes we all should break laws to be 'cool' because laws are for losers with no balls!
"You are acting stupid"
next time i buy a xbox,windows7,gtx480,PS3,ipad,iphone,intel cpu,plasma-TV and a SCO finance Share paper to make sure i'm really acting stupid.
All this discussion aside, cat 10.5's should be out next week, so we can all see what's there then.
What Q says isn't always right, but it isn't always wrong either. I personally don't find what he says any worse than some things that come out of phoronix.
For what it's worth though, I don't think 10.5 or 10.6 will be as grand as he's suggesting. We'll just see what we see.
I find it completely believable that what Q posts is the NDA'd beta driver changelog, and features that don't pass QA just aren't in the official ones.
