And most hardware enthusiasts will probably continue to ignore just how stark the contrast is with Nvidia. Not only does AMD allow open source solution on top of their hardware, they actually contribute to it significantly. Just another one in the long list of open technologies. On MIT license, no less.

yet, Nvidia will steal it, make some proprietary extensions to make it run faster and bribe game devs so they include it. Then benchmarks show that AMD performs worse (no wonder, they don’t have the proprietary extensions). Classical Embrace, Extend, Extinguish strategy.

Vote with your wallet. Don’t buy Nvidia. Give them the middle finger.

Nvidia already came out with DLSS before AMD FSR came out.

Yeah, Nvidia also came out with GSync before Freesync became a standard. Doesn’t make their business practices consumer friendly.

AMD’s support of free software keeps surprising me, it’s not perfect granted, but at the beggining most people thought it was another strategy to attract more users, now it looks like they see it as a business model.
