I don't think you're reading what I actually wrote or even bother to understand the point I'm trying to argue and so you just distort it and then argue against something I've not said.Why are you moving goal-posts? We were talking about the validity of the (your) assumption that old titles always run better than new titles. Why are you now talking about modern titles?
It's about expectations. If we run with your claim that old titles always run better on new hardware through sheer brute-force, regardless of optimization, then upon finding out that a new RX 6800XT is even slower than a last gen RTX 2080 Super, we end up with a situation that runs contrary to your claim. For you that's fine, but for me and many others it is not.
Here's my point illustrated perfectly: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crysis-10-year-anniversary-benchmarks,5329.html
It's doubtful that AMD or Nvidia spent much if any serious effort fixing drivers to optimize performance for Crysis as the years passed by, yet the more modern cards run it just fine. It looks like Nvidia has better performance, but are the AMD cards getting unacceptable frame rates? No, because the cards all became powerful enough to brute force their way past any lack of driver optimization.
So what's the problem? If you've got an AMD card wait a few more years if that's what it takes. There're probably other games you can play that don't have the same problem, never mind plenty of new games that aren't even graphically intensive. If you're already willing to wait until you can run the game at the graphical fidelity levels you want, just wait until the card you have is powerful enough.People have backlogs of games, they wait till they have the requisite hardware to play games at the fidelity levels they want, by which time a new game becomes "old". It happens all the time among my friends' circle who play games. I'd take my experience over your improbable claims any day of the week.
Okay fine, you win. It's a flaw. Congratulations, here's your internet points. Now why don't you go back to your bridge and enjoy them and stop crapping up this thread.Another justification for what AMD can/will/won't do. You could just accept that it is a flaw instead of rationalizing it.
