nVidia takes a 1/3 of the pie... (http://gizmodo.com/373076/nvidia-responsible-for-nearly-30-of-vista-crashes-in-2007)

The relativity of this topic is arguable, but it sure is about drivers! :D

I saw that on another board, ouch, nice going Nvidia. I bet it's that NVLDMMKMKMKDLDMDM crash that makes up most of it.

Yeah, that has to be embarrassing.

Good I say, I'm sure they're all over it now.

Can nvidia drivers crash if bad calls are sent to them by the application? If so, these numbers have almost no meaning.

Then the app would crash and the error report would be tied to the app. I think this is error reports that were generated from a driver crash. Nvidia had alot of driver issues with Vista so this isn't suprising.

Ouch...

But...are they mostly related to SLi issues? I think there is more SLI users than XFire

Agreed - I've had four total crashes in Vista and each one has been Nvidia drivers - getting this on slashdot to shacknews has got to be embarrassing for them and maybe this will get them on the burner a bit more to fix some issues

You have to put this in perspective, ati had a much larger market share than ATI did at the time, yet ati had almost 10% of the crashes...

Also there could be more enthusiasts who overclock with nvidia on Vista...

Stupid Ati, having a bigger market share than Ati, how DARE they :smoking:

Including discrete and integrated solutions, the difference isn't that big between AMD and Nvidia.

And the FACT is Intel has the largest market share and still Nvidia's drivers were pretty crap (initially). Look back to the threads around the time Vista was RTM, you will see plenty of threads about users complaining about the driver support. It WAS pretty shoddy.

Look for similar threads on R3D or other sites including NVN and you will see far fewer related to AMD cards, because the drivers were better.
