Re: gotta stop torturing myself!
I accept your kindness towards the issue Shamrock. For me, it was more of emotional trauma than really a fanboyism towards one company or the other. My experience has been one of not so much joy when using amd gpu products. Like I said I respect and admire the courage amd users have for the growing pains that amd puts you through. Yes, Nvidia also has growing pains of their own. NV's growing pains get remedied faster than AMD's. To put it bluntly, My constant bad experiences (not as a generalization) have been too many for me to really accustom myself back to even using amd's gpu product as I have given amd's product multiple chances to show me something better. Every time through circumstance or actual problem it's just soured me away from amd regardlessof price points, bundles or anything else that gives a good appearance to amd or nv. For AMD's sake, I would like to see the day where consistancy does come about for them. For instance, the variance in their r9 290 gpu boost issue first when I found out that their gpu actually runs normally at 664 mhz and gpu boosts to 947 makes me feel like it's a step backwards in terms of overall value. And with the future, I can only see nv and amd making another refresh because I learned that the 20nm process isn't due in high yields for both companies until 3Q 2014. Which means we (amd and nv) may see another rebadge/refresh before nv maxwell or amd next gen hits the market. I mean MS shot themselves in the foot by hindering the pc on the software front. I don't want to see hardware manufacturers doing the same. My final words,I like mobile devices for being mobile. On the other hand, no mobile device can outmatch a desktop pc or macpro desktop for raw processing power.
