Oxide Developer says "NVIDIA was Putting Pressure on them" to change their DX12 Bench

Oxide Developer says "NVIDIA Was Putting Pressure On Us To Disable Certain Settings In The Benchmark" as they do not support asynchronous compute like AMD.



Read more on the claims that Nvidia were pressuring Oxide games to change their DX12 Benchmark.

More nVidia slander? (not directed at you WYP). Then again, seems very believable that nVidia would be doing this.

Logan over at TS will be happy. He like many other have claimed all along that AMD will get an advantage with DX12.

Just like when the Crysis benchmark that came out had some Nvidia shenanigans, and Crysis 2 had the tessellation field to cripple AMD.

I think a few driver revisions might fix some of the disadvantage. Just like AMD changes tessellation on a driver level, I think Nvidia can overcome some of this.

I guess it's time to shove GameWorks more aggressively in more titles in order to make Nvidia seem like a better choice. Because god forbid that Nvidia does something that benefits the consumers.

Of course, that is their absolute first priority (sarcasm BTW)

Well Well.... You'd think this sort of thing wouldn't be necessary with 80% market share...

you don't keep 80% market share by not using that position to force devs to play ball.

It's sad really.

GPU owners are about as fickle as it comes. That 80% could be gone within a year if their cards are crap for DX12.
