This is a terrible assumption. Just because a title is old doesn't mean that it runs better than current titles. Go look at Kingdom Come Deliverance or Watch Dogs 2, as examples of DX11 titles. I can give examples of even DX9 titles which bring modern GPUs to their knees but that'll be a digression.If it's an old enough title it won't matter.
And that is relevant how? Why would I care about future hardware being able to break through my monitor refresh rate if current hardware underperforms?You eventually reach a point where it runs it faster than the monitor can display the frames.
How do you know that those who play older games are insignificant enough to not matter?Also, the people who don't play any of those older games at all won't lose sleep over it, just like they don't over the poor fuel economy of a car they don't own.
Wow you must love AMD GPUs so much that you're willing to gloss over its flaws. There is a word for that behaviour, too bad it isn't allowed to be mentioned in these forums.Maybe you should contact their marketing department. I'm sure consumers would feel better if there were an "Amazing drivers for 10 year old games!" sticker on the box.
Or better yet, go tell the board at AMD that Lisa Su is doing a terrible job because there isn't better driver support for older games. I'm sure they'd love to hear about how much better AMD could be doing if only gamers who likely don't own AMD cards (I mean, if you cared about the game back in the day at all you probably grabbed an Nvidia card due to the better performance since AMD would have had these same driver problems with the game back then) could get better performance in these older games. I'm sure no one on the driver team has anything better they could be doing with their time and good shout from management will get the lazy gits sorted out.
