Bizarre and defensive, eh? So bringing up facts that support my argument, even if it isn't strictly gaming related is bizarre now? Yes, I'm defensive. I'm an AMD/ATI fanboy...duh. Everyone knows that. Get with the program, dude!
Bitcoin mining and the weak console APUs which can barely manage 60fps in most 720p games aren't exactly facts that support any argument here. Buying a brand instead of a product just means you're buying into marketing. AMD has put out dog shit products in the past and I didn't buy them. Same with Nvidia. My comment is as valid as yours, maybe you've never used an Nvidia product and are lying. I guess if I was weird I could just assume that but I gave you the benefit of the doubt. I don't know why you're so defensive and hostile about others being balanced and buying products based on their merits "bruh". Getting that emotionally invested in a brand is really strange, it reminds me of the Apple cult.
Getting back to things that matter, I dislike the idea of GeForce Now. The latency will never be there for many of the games I care about and I don't like having no local access to the product.
Did I not just
say I was an AMD/ATI fanboy? Why am I 'so defensive and hostile about others being balanced and buying products based on their merits'? Oh, 'bruh'? It's so funny how you can sit there in previous posts and bash AMD and then wonder why someone that actually LIKES AMD would come in and defend it. For the same reason you talk shit about it is why I come in here and defend it, because it was the subject of the discussion. And for the record, I call bullshit on your ' weak console APU's that can barely manage 60fps in most 720p games'. Way to generalize, there. Most current gen consoles have absolutely NO problem giving 60fps at 720p. It's when they get up to 1080p when they have trouble and not because the APU can't handle it, but rather, in Xbone's case anyway, the way they have video ram (or ESRAM) implemented. A paltry 512megs of it ain't gonna get you far. The APU in the PS4 has no problem with games, assuming the dev actually knows
what the hell they're doing! As for PC-based APU's, I have an A6 (which has an equivalent HD6350) with 4gb of DDR3 and it has no trouble playing 1080p video, or playing anything up to 'AAA' graphics heavy games in 1080p. The Witcher3 and GTA5 have some
trouble without pulling the options down a tad, but then again, my 7850 has trouble with it, too, at 1680x1050. And have I owned nVidia? Would you like to see the box of nVidia Geforce256, GF2MX's, GF3's and TNT2's and RIVA's I have sitting next to me? Aside from them, I have two laptops with 670M's. So yes, I've used nVidia, and I don't like them one bit.
