    • David Shirk: I was wondering about that. I never had any driver issues with any of the AMD/Radeon builds I have had in the past.

    • Justin Jaynes: I have had issues with both, but neither of them have been game breaking. The story stank to me from the moment I read it.

    • Justin Jaynes: Typically most press releases are about partnerships, not denouncing a vendor to talk about how great another vendor is.

    • Justin Jaynes: Had Origin not talked about how great Nvidia was in the same breath the bashed AMD, I would've not been nearly as hesitant.

    • David Shirk: good points

    • Ashraf Eassa: Charlie is rabidly anti-NVIDIA.

    • Justin Jaynes: @AE - True, but it is extremely odd for a boutique PC vendor to go out of their way to state they dumped a chip vendor and promote another

    • Justin Jaynes: this story doesn't seem like it's a leap of faith for charlie to make

    • David Shirk: No it doesnt - but if he included his sources I would be a lot happier :-)

    • Justin Jaynes: twitter feed from some tech writers and Origin CEO
      10/6/13
    • Justin Jaynes: @AE/DS - check twitter for the Q&A from Charlie, Patrick Moorhead, etc.

    • David Shirk: I understand that - but the guy seems to be mainly taking issue with AMD's support. I still agree that there is a lot he is not saying
      10/6/13
    • David Shirk: like why he chose to publicly announce dropping AMD GPU's - but in this case his story is not adding up
      10/6/13
    • David Shirk: For instance, why would AMD be responsive on the CPU side and not their GPU side as far as troubleshooting goes
      10/6/13
    • Justin Jaynes: Charlie asked him to cite samples before when origin has had press releases for dropping vendors...
      10/6/13
    • Justin Jaynes: that was my whole issue to begin with
      10/6/13
    • David Shirk: Agreed on that point. No matter how you cut it - it is poor sportsmanship at best.
