    Like I said, that is all based on what I've heard. I personally only have Intel graphics in my laptop, so I have no experience with either of those GPU vendors on non-Windows machines.

    So AMD loses badly on some synthetic tests created by nvidia. What does this say for real world performance for real world consumers? Nothing?

    a lot.. in real world its not that huge difference..but if highest end AMD GPU gets beaten by midrange nvidia...something must be terribly wrong

    Calm down. These benchmarks were written by a NVIDIA guy so they *may* not be objective.

    Again, an NVidia employee wrote this test, and he targeted NVidia cards specifically...

    Yep apitest is just writted by Nvidia for one GDC session to show that there is already "fast path" in their OpenGL dirver .





    etc. http://www.slideshare.net/CassEverit...river-overhead

    Just to point out... when they say "OpenGL", they mean our OpenGL implementation ;D.

    This benchmark tests the driver, the implementation/performance of a certain API subset, not the gpu performance!

    DirectX on a nVidia card outperforms Mantle on a similar spec AMD card.

    Still waiting for AMD Drivers to not cause broken cursor on Windows with a multiple monitor setup.

    I wonder how many of those tests have alternative implementations using AMD extensions.

    A benchmark made by Nvidia should be taken with a huge grain of salt.

    Still waiting for good open source NVIDIA drivers so I can use their hardware, until then its a paper weight.
