News Comments > More NVIDIA Gameworks Controversy

If I understand this right, NVidia Gameworks not only messes with AMD cards, it kills performance on previous NVidia generations, even though base on specs they should run faster?

Time to boycott games based on Gameworks...



Don't blindly believe everything you read, especially if it's dramatic. GameWorks absolutely does not do anything specific to hinder performance on non-NVIDIA. It's just optimized the most for Maxwell, which means any arch that's not Maxwell will not run at 100%. Including NVIDIA's older arch.

Also, PhysX is now open sourced. So there is no excuse for anyone to blame performance on that. Just take the code and tune it for your app/gpu. Developers could have actually got the source to PhysX long before it was open sourced. They just needed to have contacted NVIDIA and set all of that up.

And, no one is forcing any dev to use GameWorks. NVIDIA never pays anyone millions of dollars to use their stuff, unlike AMD (Hello Battlefield 4!). If a dev decides to use GameWorks they need to be aware of all the people that will not or can not use it and make sure their game has an optimized path for that. I guess devs these days are just lazy and/or incompetent.

Windows 10 needs to come with some of the games from the old Entertainment Packs like Pipe Dream, Rattler Race, Rodent's Revenge, Fuji Golf, Ski Free, Chip's Challenge, and Jezzball. Those were always my favorites.

I also played a lot of that pinball game that came with some Windows.

They should have just made the fatalities simpler to pull off to begin with.

But still, I'm insanely excited for this and can't wait to play it tonight! It's going to be interesting how I'll juggle MKX and GTAV.

2015 puts it in Hellraid territory and if I had a choice between more Dead Island or dungeon crawling with medieval weaponry, I'd likely suite up for the latter.


I wasn't aware of Hellraid until now. Looks quite good.

I do like the old-school SNES era graphics. Honestly, old school 8/16-bit graphics, with all their glorious pixels, makes me more exited than modern graphics, oddly enough.

I will likely check this out.

I also expect it wont be long before we get a bunch of hippie ass liberals complaining about how this is racist, like they did with the game that became snuggle truck. Before you had to drive illegal mexicans in the truck but a bunch of whiney babies complained and now you carry stuffed animals.

The feel and control of Arma 3 is a lot better than all the previous. Some aspects could probably be a little better (like less crazy recoil), but overall it's quite a good game. Still a man simulator, but less annoying.

This mention of VR training courses sounds interesting. I guess this means they're supporting Oculus now? (I've been away from Arma for a while now).

Windows 10 goes free(kinda, sorta), Unreal 4 Engine goes free, PhysX is free now, what the hell is going on, it's the apocalypse!!!!! Good stuff.
You've missed Source 2 also free

You're right. I read something about that also. I wonder if this will put pressure on Carmack to release idTech 5 Engine for free. I hope so. Can't be anything but good for everybody.


Back when Carmack was still with id, he wanted to release the idTech 5 source at the same time as Rage. Everyone else had a cow so that never happened. Since Carmack is now gone from id and he was the main one that pushed for open source I doubt we'll see id engines opened sourced again. I hope I'm wrong though.

But UE4 is far superior to idTech 5 and probably 6 anyway. It's a wonderful engine.

I look forward to poking around in Source 2 as well.

Also, I'm hearing that fucking Wilhelm scream sound effect more and more in movies, tv shows, and games these days. The other one I hear all the time is the stereotypical prison door squeak. Fucking annoying. It's not funny anymore, you guys. Stop it.

That and that generic sound effect that is invariably used for doors opening/closing in science fiction shows-argh.


I think that sound was also what DOOM used for doors, or at least very similar. I remember watching some scifi movie once (don't remember what it was called) and when doors were opening and closing I was like WTF that's DOOM sounds!

The fact that they are delaying this several times now just shows they don't want it to be an unoptimized port, as some are saying. If this was going to be an unoptimized port, then it would be out right now.
