Thread: Given up on ATI. sold and bought an NVidia

  1. #1

    Default Given up on ATI. sold and bought an NVidia

    i gave up with ATI.
    I'm tired of always being promised that LATER, the drivers will be better than NVidia's

    I sold my ATI 4870 and bought a GeForce GTX 260 (216 55nm).
    I want working compiz TODAY, and same day Xorg support.
    we should all do a petition telling ATI they need to deliver NOW, and not keep promising later. Or at least get an official roadmap

    True, ATI may deliver in 6 months, and I'll reconsider them then (though they'll have to EARN my business by delivering, not promising),
    I'm just tired of excitedly installing each new catalyst to see little or no improvement.

    My laptop with onboard intel gfx does compiz, but my $300 ATI doesn't?
    you've got to be joking

    Hmm... I have (strangely) better experience with ATi than NVidia. Overall, I think the NVidia drivers just suck..

    O well, your choice, good luck .

    i'm on Arch Linux i686 with Gnome.
    I've spend the last 6 months with the 4870, with everyone promising that 'soon' drivers will be better than nvidia.

    i'm just tired of waiting.

    We might have to wait until Catalyst 9.3, but we also might have to wait until catalyst 11.12

    why wait when i already know nvidia's binary blob is good.
