The only way we can make AMD's FX-8350 look like a better gaming value than Intel's Core i7-3770K (specifically in the games and at the settings we used to test) is if the rest of the system is free.

NVIDIA calls its software implementation GameWorks VR and AMD calls its software support LiquidVR. Things will be tough for developers in this short window of time, but Oculus claims its necessary to "allow them to more rapidly evolve the software architecture and API.

Getting smaller features allows a chip designer to create products that are faster, cheaper, and consume less power. Texas Instruments, on the other hand, decided that they would continue manufacturing but get out of the chip design business.

Since these drivers are not for the pre-release operating system, I tried running it on 349.90 to see how it performed before upgrading. I would definitely update my drivers if they were available and supported, but I'm glad that it seems to be playable even on Windows 10.

However the company is also pushing the use of Physically Based Rendering (PBR), a compute-intensive rendering solution that uses far more accurate rendering algorithms to accurately model the physical characteristic of a material, in essence properly capturing how light will interact with that material and reflect off of it rather than using a rough approximation. However as FP64 compute is not widely used in graphics, this is not something NVIDIA believes will be an issue.
