  1. With nVidia Life is Good

    That is how I've been operating. If I hear a lot of wonderful things about AMD from credible sources I may have to reevaluate my present stance. But as things are now nVidia just works better than...
  2. A case could be made

    Perhaps Linus Torvalds was the worst thing that happened for GNU. Maybe it was the the environment that Linus created that enabled nVidia to operate as it has? Sure Linus created Linux, but if he...
  3. You ran those games in Linux?

    I think I read elsewhere in this thread that AMD is different in Windows than Linux so where you ran them would matter.
  4. Never is a long time

    I never look at AMD now, but things change. One change I've noticed is AMD has been making positive progress when it comes to Linux. So I am not going to discount them for all of time. I just do not...
  5. No, that is not it

    I did some looking myself in hopes of finding something related but the signal to noise ratio on the topic is far too high, and my resources far too limited to have succeeded. I guess you'll just...
  6. I doubt it was you

    Unless you were working for ATI over 10 years ago now. That is when the legendary backpedal occurred. Like all of the other random people on the Internet I didn't take notes, but I don't forget...
  7. As I see it

    Right now I'm getting a feeling we may all be rooting for our favorite dinosaur. The days of the big CPU may be drawing to a close, or perhaps the days of the small CPU being big enough might just be...
  8. The field is wide open

    Perhaps what you say is true. If it is then players should step up to the plate and give it their best shots. Right now the undeniable heavy hitter is Intel, and fans are not finding it difficult to...
  9. I know where my Cyrix chip is

    So I obviously know who they were, and what happened to it too. It was fast, but it identified itself as a 486, so that hampered its performance with 586 applications.
  10. Where do you think I got those numbers from?

    That is the output from Darkplaces with the benchmark switch. The Blob has nothing to do with it. Don't make me go get LordHavoc to spank you! He uses AMD by the way. At least I think that is what he...
  11. You're absolutely right

    What tans my hide is AMD has said some things, then done others. I'd be more on their side if either they didn't promise the Moon, yet fail to deliver, or just were more consistent. I'll admit...
  12. Meanwhile back at the ranch...

    ... while Tonto and the Lone Ranger were plucking watermelons ... Intel secretly infiltrated the AMD development team with chimps dressed in monkey suits to sabotage the Bulldozer design! Come off it...
  13. Hey newbie

    I've been running Linux for almost twice as long as you have. Maybe you'll get there with it someday?

    First off Nvidia is not hostile to Linux. They've supplied drivers for their hardware for...
  14. Let me see here

    Perhaps you missed the part where I said it worked once? There was no system update that could have affected it either. I was already running a custom kernel that my distribution could not touch. I...
  15. What are you babbling about?

    Why would I boot off a CD? The machine booted fine just the video driver was gone. I can run Linux without X Window. But like you say, because problem may be just not in fglrx, anything is possible....
  16. Bug report?

    How could I file a bug report? What am I going to say your driver fscking sucks it worked once and disappeared. I pulled the card and went back to my on board. It is better anyways.
  17. Just the facts ma'am

    I just tried ATI or AMD or whatever they're calling themselves today binary driver and it worked once, and exactly once. Then it didn't work again. I was like WTG AMD for bringing the Windows world...
  18. What competition?

    Do you mean AMD's race to the bottom? Even if there was only one chip manufacturer there would still be builder competition and seller competition. As far as I'm concerned there already is only one...
  19. What is the advantage of matching monitors?

    It may seem weird but in use it works well. I use the wide screen to watch video, and the 4x3 for regular computer apps. When I play Quake my crosshair isn't between the screens either.
  20. How is this for a system?

    That Radeon HD6670 is too rich for my blood. Why it cost more than my last 2 PCs put together all by itself. Plus AMD sucks. Go Nvidia!

    This PC:
    HP a6712f, dual monitors: Dell SE19WFPv, acer...
