    Who is forgiving Nvidia? Any names? What is the evidence?

    I think if ATI features are on par with Nvidia, Linux users would buy ATI cards exclusively. No contest. I don't know of any reason why a Linux user would consider Nvidia if ATI cards are up to par or at least 95%+ on par. There is an open source driver and if you have gaming/Wine capability plus high performance video playback that works without bugs/major issues, ATI cards are the obvious choice.

    In Windows, Nvidia cards are often chosen for Folding and if the price/performance is better. I don't think there's not too many other reasons. In Linux, Nvidia cards are chosen so they avoid these issues that are often reported. Just check the categories in this forum. There's a clutter of topics in both ATI FOSS drivers and ATI FGLRX drivers sections. Not much going on in the Nvidia one. Why is that, huh? Because everyone is forgiving Nvidia?!?

      It's been said so many times already. Nvidia users are at NvNews, Ati users here.

        Quick question: what settings are used for the Heaven Unigine test?
        Because I have a 470 GTX and would like to compare performance.

        Cheers,

                I miss qualelive tests - or quake3 tests - over ubuntu / Arch / MS WOS XP / Vista / 7

                In order to review OS/drivers opengl preformance.

                I have just prove Quake Live for Linux and goes pretty well, but I do not know benchmarks.

                PS: openGL drivers for old Nvidia ( 7950 GX2 works better with crack attack tha ATI old ones X800.

                  Yes, fglrx really has parity with nVidia's blob. It's just that we don't hear the other side.

                      Yeh, I should've used it in my post.

                      So I finally went from 10.7 to 10.8 today. I didn't do it straight away cause I had things to get done and wasn't sure if I'd have to roll back if there was breakage. Can't really see much improvement unfortunately.

                      Still no v-sync not to mention when resizing windows while running Blender is agonisingly slow.

                      Switching to Windows might be the prudent thing for me to do. At least the Windows driver is in much better shape than the Linux one.
