Ah. The Nvidia nerfs driver's script lives on.Wrong again, I had been on the PC gaming scene since the Voodoo days and had been clear that since nVIdia decided to do to a static software scheduler on Kepler, they would rely a lot on driver tricks and hand optimizations for their GPUs to perform. That explains a lot of why their GPUs would perform better at launch and after a year or two they would start to trail AMD equivalents to the point of becoming a POS. Look how the GTX 780 stands today against the R9 290X. If you are going to astroturf for nVidia, at least do a decent effort at it.
Check the financials and how much more Nvidia did to get more GPUs out than AMD. AMD shipped 11% less. Nvidia was up 8%. That's quite the spread for a company that nerfs cards.
