I don't see AMD have much to worry about, just provide "stable" drivers which actually work well and they will be on a winner.

I have found that the Nvidia Purevideo drivers enhance nothing, and worsen imaging when I have switched them on with Windvd 7 & 8, so not alot for AMD to worry about there.

I don't think its unreasonable thing to ask for when people are shelling out alot of money for these products. Its like buying a Porsche and then forgetting to provide an engine management system.

Drivers? Their first objective is to actually release a new product. I feel like im playing my games on a my imginary K8L Stars AND rv630.

Well that is pretty much spot on. Now I like AMD as much as anybody else, for years I only built AMD systems, and I had always hoped they'd catch up with Intel. But I just don't understand the total and complete dismissal of any of the problems AMD is currently facing.

Perfect example right here, AMD has nothing to worry about but drivers because someone can't get purevideo setup properly with Windvd. I mean could anybody honestly think that? They certainly have a hell off a lot to worry about and drivers isn't at the top of that list.

They are in the worst position both financially and as far as competitive products out in the market in a long time, a very long time. I hope they can bounce back from this because it certainly isn't good for the consumer to have less competition in the marketplace, but they are in one hell of a jam right now. People can close their eyes and plug their ears all they want but it wont make this situation go away.

Well, there aren't actually any real DX10 boards on the market. The all loved G80 doesn't support DX10 in vista right now.

Drivers are important. If not, why don't you switch to VESA SVGA drivers for your card right now? That has gotta be well tested.
