    No, I just give you advice to take BDISO and check hardware playback of original stream on your own.

    But you, as expected, not going to do that, and you will continue to believe in working hardware playback on Ironlake (somehow it's works, yes, but... ).

    Well, if it weren't for this little thing where vsync issues (which aren't directly related to power management, lower clocks just make the already present issue a bit worse) don't mean "no big difference". Intel still has proper power management and AMD doesn't. And with Intel you at least have options to try to mitigate vsync issues.
    On other hand AMD have working vsync. And with AMD you at least have options to try mitigate PM issues (using auto or low power profile).
    C'mon, admit it: you can't call Intel PM that make things worse (and even ususable for someone) using word "proper".

    Every person who say something like "AMD not worse than Intel" is a troll. As usually, same for people who disagree with you.

      And now you probably think you've scored some victory. Go you!

      And here, in trying to be funny (har har), is where you lose completely. Even on the low profile, the open driver still consumes more power than Catalyst does. So that's not an "option" for laptop users who want long battery life.

          And another victory for you!! Man you're on a roll today!! You should get a medal or something.

          I could write something to that sentence, it's quite easy. But honestly, seeing how you're counting your victories is way more fun.

          • So, whats a good replacement for my old 4770 in the nvidia side, both in performance, consumption, and price?

              Well, I was very happy with GT440, which worked perfectly well even with nouveau.

                Sure, that because you not write anything.

                  Agreed, though it was in response to equally unnecessarily narrow-minded knee-jerk reactions.

                    mmm it performs a little less than the 4770, guess I'll switch to the 450 gts

                    • I've been about to comment on these "AMD drops support for 4000-series" articles since I own one, and since I think it's at least two years too soon to drop support for it. I mean, I got my Radeon 4850 about 3 years ago and at the time it was the second-best generation you could buy. It wasn't the most expensive card on the market, since the 5000 series had come out, but it was about $300 if I remember correctly.

                      BUT. The reason I haven't actually commented is that the reason I bought AMD was their FOSS support, and I've been using the FOSS drivers ever since (thank you Bridgman and guys!). At first, I don't think it even supported the R700-chip, so I had to use Catalyst for a couple of months, but since the experimental (beta?) 2D support was released, I switched and have never really switched back. So even though I think it's a shame they're dropping R700 support (why not only R500 since it's a lot older), it won't affect me that much. But of course that's just me.
