Sooo... Does AMD Even Care?
Because it kind of seems like they don't.
I've wondered if maybe it's because they produce both processors and video cards that they're spread out too thin, while Nvidia only has to be exceedingly good at one thing.
I know gaming on Linux is only just picking up momentum, but I've heard AMD drivers on Windows are also a bit lackluster compared to Nvidia.
I get the odd feeling that AMD is not especially passionate about what they do, and that they scornfully trudge ahead in this business, shirking responsibility and accountability whenever possible.
The other possibility I've considered is that maybe they lack sufficient resources or personnel to do what's needed.
Whatever it is, AMD strikes me as fairly silent and unresponsive, with little or no ways to get in contact with them. As someone with an AMD GPU, I do submit feedback on their developer site (http://devgurus.amd.com/community/steam-linux),
but I have no idea if anybody from AMD is actually reading or considering any of it.
I'd love to see AMD snap into action, and become a worthy competitor on Linux and SteamOS. Competition is good, lest Nvidia someday become complacent.
Am I ill-informed or missing something? What do you think?
