Fortunately or unfortunately, but most of the modern IT-information field is occupied by smartphones and other mobile gadgets. The PC market has slowed down the past six years, Intel just got a kick from AMD and start something to do, and the video card though, and continue to amaze with each new generation, except that most of the missing and the adapters of the last series.
Many of you probably do not know that the previous forums have carried out a bloody outrage among fans of the ATI (then AMD) and Nvidia on the subject of anyone cooler card. In particular, very long ago there was a view that the drivers for Radeon cards are much worse than wood for Nvidia, they are often buggy and stuff. And this opinion exists so far.
The resource specialists QA Consultants have undertaken to verify this myth. They got six AMD and Nvidia cards six. Each side had three games and three professional card. The list of participants looked like this: Radeon RX 560, Radeon RX 580, RX Vega Radeon 64, Radeon Pro WX 3100, Radeon 7100 Pro WX, the WX Pro Radeon 9100, GeForce GTX 1050, 1060 GeForce GTX, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, P600 Quadro, Quadro Quadro P4000 and P5000.
The adapters were tested on identical PC with fresh Windows 10 and the fresh drivers. New items were subjected to a 12-day test, which was carried out for 432 test for each group of accelerators. The result was that more stable drivers, however AMD. Cards from the red camp successfully held 92.8% of all tests, and maps of the green — only to 82.4%. That is, the adapter in one form or another botched test 31, card Nvidia — 76 tests, that is more than twice as much. Most often, interestingly, the problem turned out to be a professional card Nvidia, although they should be more stable. More precisely, the more stable should be the drivers for them.
In General, all is good, but the study was conducted at the request of AMD. Yes, there are all the results and everything seems clean, just the Nvidia fans such proof will not be accepted.
And which camp do you belong? Noticed have ever problems with the drivers?
